Dear Father, dear Deacon, dear Religious,

The Nunciature have asked us to make the following as widely known as possible. Please put it on your parish websites.

FRIDAY MARCH 27TH  5.00PM (London time)

In order to offer intercession and consolation during this time of exceptional discomfort, the Holy Father will preside over a time of prayer and Eucharistic Adoration in St Peter’s Square, without a congregation, on  March 27th.  During this time Pope Francis will impart the Urbi et Orbi Blessing and will grant a plenary Indulgence to all those who share in this prayer via the media.

This will be broadcast on mondovision and streamed by  Vatican News.

Thank you!

Prayer and good wishes,
