Welcome to The Aleteia Experience. Aleteia means “truth” in Greek, and the Christian faith is based on the truth of the life, teaching, suffering, salvific death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. For 2,000 years, that truth has brought hope and joy to millions who have encountered Christ through his Church, through his saints, through the “living stones” who testify to their own encounter with Christ, and so persuade others to follow Him.
The Aleteia Experience is a week in Italy which becomes an experience of the past and present life of Rome, the Eternal City, in a way that can deepen faith, increase hope, and prompt a new commitment to the love of God and our brothers and sisters. In this sense, The Aleteia Experience is an experience of the truth of the faith that issues in deeper spiritual life.
Everything in this week is designed to bring you into close contact with the truth of the faith. We spend five days in Rome and two days outside of Rome. We visit many holy shrines, and we meet with many simple Christian believers who bear witness to their faith and deepen our own. We have designed this pilgrimage for you, to immerse you in the life of the Church in Rome today, and as it has been lived for 2,000 years. So please come and join with us as we walk through Rome’s streets, pray in Rome’s chapels, visit Rome’s shrines, and those of Assisi and Lanciano and Manoppello, and become part of a new generation of Catholics who bear witness to the truth of the faith around world.
