Mass for Migrants this week

This coming Friday, 6 July, at 11:00am local time (5:00am EDT), the Holy Father, Pope Francis will celebrate a Mass for Migrants at the Altar of the Chair in Saint Peter's Basilica.  The Mass coincides with the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis' visit to Lampedusa (8 July 2013).

This will be a moment of prayer for those who have died, for survivors and for those who are involved in helping them.

Approximately 200 people are expected to attend, including some refugees and people who are caring for their needs.

Only those who are in possession of tickets for this gathering will be permitted to attend, but the tickets are entirely free of charge.
