Benedictine Leadership Studies Program
Rome, Italy
March 5-11, 2017

Join Saint Vincent College’s Benedictine Leadership Studies (BLS) Program in Rome, Italy, for a week of fun, faith and deep insight into the Eternal City. We invite alums and friends of Saint Vincent to journey with monks, a professor and seniors in the BLS program on a unique and engaging trip that will retrace the steps of Julius Caesar, Saint Monica, Saint Augustine, Michelangelo and many others. Dr. Jerome Foss will lead daily discussions on these important leaders from the very places they lived and in some cases died. Fr. Paul Taylor, O.S.B., and Fr. Benoit Alloggia, O.S.B., will share insights from The Rule of Saint Benedict from Montecassino, the famous monastery built by Saint Benedict more than 1,500 years ago. We invite you to join us for this unique, engaging and thoughtful experience of Rome.

The Saint Vincent College Benedictine Leadership Studies Program, utilizing The Rule of Saint Benedict as the cornerstone leadership model along with the social teaching of the Catholic Church, provides students with a deeper understanding of leadership in their personal and professional lives and in service to the local, national and global community. By participating in the program, you will gain an unparalleled academic and cultural experience of the history and grandeur of Rome, while supporting the growth of Saint Vincent College students to become leaders themselves, as they study the finest leaders of Benedictine tradition.
