Vatican City, Rome on

Saturday 24th – Tuesday 27th October 2015


Many thousands of nomadic people are expected to attend from many countries around the world, including Ireland, travelling as pilgrims and as ambassadors for Christ.

• To allow for the organisers in Rome to cater properly for the many thousands of pilgrims coming from many countries far and wide, this is now the final call for registration of pilgrims.

• Anyone, or any family or group already booked to go, or intending to go, needs in advance to be registered to gain access to the planned Papal general audience and other pilgrimage events.

• So, advance Registration and Passes will be needed. These Passes will be issued to each pilgrim who is registered. Every Group wishing to apply through the Parish for Pilgrimage Passes will need to complete and sign a Registration Form.

• This Form and further details are available by contacting us here at the Parish. The Form may also be downloaded here . A fully completed and signed Registration Form for each Group registering through the Parish must be received back in the Parish no later than the final closing date which is this coming Wednesday, 19th August 2015.
