In previous years a party of parishioners have made pilgramages to Assisi staying at St. Anthony's Guest House, with the Sisters of the Atonement on a bed and breakfast basis, most rooms are en-suite.
The major interests of Assisi are the locations linked to St. Francis and also St. Clare who is entombed in the former St. George's Church, which is now beneath the Church of St. Clare.
A service of Holy Communion is held each morning in the chapel of the guest house before heading off to visit the various sites which are linked to St. Francis of Assisi and St. Clare, evening dinner is taken in one of the many restaurants in Assisi and the day concludes with a Compline service which is conducted by the vicar.
