A group of 24 students, faculty and community members participated in a seven-day pilgrimage to Rome, Vatican City, Assisi and Florence. The program “Legacy Peter and Paul in Italy” was constructed by Ashland University’s Global Education Director Rebecca Parillo with a class offered in conjunction with the trip to Italy taught by Dr. David Aune, associate professor of religion at Ashland University.
“The Legacy of Peter and Paul in Italy" study tour was truly a transformative experience for our AU students,” Aune said. “We gained insights about the beginnings of the Roman Catholic Church and experienced its vitality and splendor throughout Rome, Assisi and Florence. And everyone agreed: the gelato was awesome beyond words.”
