Professor Lisa Passaglia Bauman, an art historian at George Mason University, uses the theme and the path of the Lenten stational churches to weave together Christian thought and Lenten practice with art history, a pilgrimage that provides a living connection to the history of Rome itself.

 

 


In the 40 days leading up to Easter, Rome becomes the site of a city-wide pilgrimage. Each day the Christian faithful make their way to a different church to visit shrines of the apostles and martyrs, following a route and a liturgy that was established more than 1,500 years ago.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
