Religion and spirituality at Assisi

044-assisi

As we know, the Catholic Faith plays a big role in Italian life and culture. Catholicism and general religious pastoral care have always been central to Assisi’s mission, vision and values, although certainly not mandatory.
Our religious program is tailored to both individual and group needs.

the late 1920s. It remains a very popular choice for
Weddings, Baptisms, Funerals, Memorial Mass and
religious festivals.
