Due to the  recent and unexpected policy changes of the Prefecture of the Pontifical Household, St. Patrick's can no longer provide tickets for the Pope's General Audience on Wednesdays.

The office of the Prefecture of the Pontifical Household is asking that you now send requests to them directly

It is best to MAIL your request to:

The Prefecture of the Pontifical Household
00120 Vatican City State

Also, on www.vatican.va - under Prefecture of the Papal Household( http://www.vatican.va/various/prefettura/en/biglietti_en.html ), you will find a form to fill, print and MAIL. You can also send your request by Fax at +3906.6988.5863 (but mailing by post is safer).  They do not use email.

Please bring along copy of your request.

We hope to continue to welcome you in the Church of St. Patrick in Rome.

Please check our website before your trip here.  We are trying to rectify this situation but so far a solution has not presented itself.

To make donations to St. Patrick's American Community in Rome, you can click on the secure PayPal/Credit card "DONATE" link below. If you need a tax credit letter, it is best not to use PayPal "DONATE", but make your donations by checks made out to “Paulist Fathers”, a US entity, and Fr. Greg can issue a letter for your taxes. You can mail this check or you can give US dollars in person. We hope this inconvenience won't discourage you from donating to the St. Patrick's American Community as we are much in need of your support.
