About the Trip

This ten day experience has been designed for members of the Merrimack College family. This includes Administrators, Alumni/ae, Faculty members, friends, Members of the Board of Trustees, and Augustinian friars who request to participate. Its purpose is to educate participants about the centrality of the charisms of COMMUNITY, SPIRIUALITY, and SERVICE in the Augustinan tradition. It fosters the building of community along those who trace to Italy together visting sites of interest and importance in the life of St. Augustine of Hippo Regius and the history of Augustinian Order, also known as Augustinian friars.

 

The Center also offers this Augustinian experience abroad for students known as A.S.P.A (Amici, Studenti, Pellegrini Agostiniani or Augustinian friends, Students, and Pilgrims). They join the other pilgrims and travel together to Augustinian Italy during Merrimack’s spring break in March of each academic year. Both groups spend a good part of the time together as a way of bringing several components of the Merrimack community together to share this common experience.
