Ferragosto Pilgrimage in Tolentino (Italy)

August 15


The Assumption Pilgrimage in Tolentino, Italy, is a remarkable event held annually on August 15:

Location: The picturesque town of Tolentino in central Italy, known for its medieval charm and rich history.

Celebration will start in the Church of the Sacred Heart: Originally a Benedictine coenobium, this church was rescued from Napoleon’s confiscation and later donated to the ‘Sacconi’ confraternity by Pope Gregory XVI. It cultivates traditional Catholic sacred music and Roman liturgy.

Pilgrimage Program:
– Latin Mass: At 4:30 PM, the Soloists of the ‘Accademia dei Dissennati’ will sing the Gregorian Mass IX ‘cum Jubilo.’
– Motets: The program includes motets such as ‘Assumpta est Maria,’ ‘Hodie Maria Virgo,’ ‘Sicut Cervus,’ ‘O Sacrum Convivium,’ and ‘Hodie Beata Virgo Maria.’
– Marian Procession: After the Holy Mass, a solemn procession featuring the ancient Madonna statue winds through Tolentino’s historic center.
– Ferragosto Buffet: The festivities conclude with an outdoor buffet.

Explore Le Marche, a stunning region often overlooked by travelers, and immerse yourself in this unforgettable celebration of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Join the ‘Sacconi’ confraternity in Tolentino for a spiritually enriching experience!
