Hilbert President Dr. Brophy is currently traveling abroad on a Franciscan pilgrimage sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Saint Joseph. Join us as he chronicles his journey!
I write from Rome where my first Franciscan pilgrimage begins. Sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Saint Joseph, I am looking forward to better understanding their charism and the work our campus community needs to focus on as we commence the implementation of our Strategic Plan, Hilbert 2025.
Our first day here in Rome happened to be Saint John Paul II’s feast day. We celebrated Mass in what is known as the Polish chapel at the Vatican, and the entire complex was busy celebrating his legacy. A great energy to begin the pilgrimage.
I will write along the way in hopes that my personal journey over the next two weeks resonates with others who are working to sustain the Franciscan way.
