Pope to impart extraordinary Urbi et Orbi blessing on Friday

In order to offer intercession and consolation during this exceptional time, the Holy father will preside over a time of prayer and Eucharistic Adoration in St Peter’s Square, without a congregation, on Friday 27th March at 5.00pm (UK time). During this time Pope Francis will impart the Urbi et Orbi Blessing and grant a plenary Indulgence to all people who share in this prayer via the media.

The event will be broadcast live from the Vatican and we hope to bring this to you through the Walsingham 24/7 Livestream.  It will also be available through EWTN GB.

The plenary indulgence attached to the Urbi et Orbi blessing is subject to the conditions foreseen by the recent decree of the Apostolic Penitentiary.
