At fixed times all the abbots/abbesses come together. They discuss there the salvation of their own souls and of those committed to them. They take measures regarding the observance of the Holy Rule and of the Order where there is something that needs to be corrected or added. They foster anew among themselves the benefit of peace and charity. They devote themselves to maintaining the patrimony of the Order and safeguarding and increasing its unity. (C.77)

Domus Pacis

The "Domus Pacis" is a Franciscan House of Welcome, adjacent to the Sanctuary of Porziuncola, and so close to the places dear to the memory of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi.

It is a privileged place to immerse yourself in the mystical beauty of Assisi, to grasp its soul and feel St. Francis' spirit. He always lived in this city and it was the stage for his truly remarkable life.

Only 3 kilometers from the historic medieval city, near the train station, the "Domus Pacis" is the ideal place for pilgrims and tourists, groups, families and individuals who want to find in the city of the Poor Man of Assisi a period of refreshment and peace, immersed in its art and green surroundings.

Thanks to its many Conference rooms and facilities, the House is ideal for hosting conferences and meetings with the most diverse requirements.
