Rome Pilgrimages (RP) is the official name for pilgrimages organised by the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney. The first Pilgrimages started in 2016.

The purpose of Rome Pilgrimages is to provide pilgrims the opportunity to deepen one’s interior and spiritual life, and to offer a religious and cultural experience of Rome – ultimately encountering Jesus and the Catholic Church.

My experience was virtually perfect! This was one of the VERY best things I have ever done in my life (I am 61) and that included taking into account variables that one has no control over such as weather and fellow travelers. I am eternally grateful to UNDA and everyone who has anything to do with Rome Pilgrimages and Domus Australia for a brilliant experience.

The Pilgrimage was an extraordinary experience for me. A time of renewal and reflection. It was incredibly well organised and the guides were fantastic.

The people at Domus Australia were very engaging, helpful and friendly. Domus is a wonderful place to stay in Rome. I appreciate the Domus Chapel and its connection to Australia.
