The Rome Experience


The Rome Experience is a cultural and spiritual pilgrimage for diocesan seminarians preparing for the diocesan priesthood. The program provides the opportunity to contemplate and nurture their divine call to the priesthood and to holiness as they pray and study in the heart of the Catholic Church, beside the Chair of St. Peter and at the tombs of the saints and martyrs. Inspired by the work of St. Josemaria Escriva (founder of Opus Dei), who dedicated years of his life to caring for the spiritual and human needs of diocesan priests, and who remains a spiritual guide for many priests today.

The Rome Experience partnered with Spirit Juice Studios to create several videos that accurately capture the mission and impact of the program on the lives of seminarians. To learn more about The Rome Experience, visit
