Roman parishioners to attend Pope’s weekday Masses
December 31, 2013
Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Holy See Press Office, has announced that beginning in January, parishioners in Rome will be permitted to attend the Pope’s weekday Masses at Domus Sanctae Marthae.
“The parishes will be informed on how to apply by Cardinal Agostino Vallini, vicar of Rome,” according to a Vatican statement. “Since the Holy Father cannot visit all the parishes in his diocese at the moment, this initiative will ensure that at least some of the faithful of Rome will be able to participate in Mass celebrated by their bishop.”
