Day One, Arrival Day

Everyone landed safely in Rome where we boarded two buses headed for Orvieto, a town high on a hill that we reached by cable car. After lunch and wandering through the midaeval style streets, we experienced a wonderful mass at the Duomo, a magnificent Cathedral that houses the very first Eucahristic Miracle. The Blessed Sacrament is kept in a special chapel for veneration where we spent some time reflecting upon the real presence of Christ.

Mass was held below the chapel in a crypt that contains the bones of St. Felix, a martyr of the 3rd century.  From there we drove to Assisi for dinner and overnight.
