Pilgramage to Italy

Nearly two dozen Heelan students embarked on a nine-day trip 
overseas in summer 2015 to tour spiritual and historical Trip to Romelandmarks and experience their faith in the heart of Italy.

Joining with high school students from Fort Dodge St. Edmond and Storm Lake St. Mary’s, they toured cultural and religious sites in Rome, Assisi, Florence and more. They attended Mass at San Lorenzo, St. Peter’s Basilica-Hungarian Chapel and Casa Santa Maria of the North American College.

Father Patrick Behm, one of three priests with the trip, also took scores of students to Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio to hear speakers and take part in special worship services to help them grow in their faith and relationship with God.
