Programme of the Fourth Summorum Pontificum pilgrimage in Rome (22-25 OCTOBER 2015)

[UPDATED October 12]
Communiqué from Cœtus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum
14 September 2015, feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

On this eighth anniversary of Benedict XVI’s motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, we are glad to communicate the official programme of the fourth people of Summorum Pontificum pilgrimage in Rome.

As a reminder: the pilgrims’ prayers will rise to the Holy Family of Nazareth for the successful outcome of the Synod on the Family, which will be coming to a close at the same time.

Please note at the end of this communiqué the many activities offered to the pilgrims by organisations besides our own to complement our pilgrimage, namely the International Federation Una Voce, the Italian CNSP, and the Madonna di Fatima association.

Participation in the pilgrimage is free of charge. Collections during services go to the hosting church. Pilgrims will, however, be able to share in the costs of the pilgrimage during a send-off collection at the beginning of the procession to Saint Peter’s.

For the procession on Saturday 24 September, religious banners and flags are welcome; on the other hand streamers are not allowed.
