Students from PNG ask to attend Pope’s morning Mass

Fifteen students from Divine Word University (DWU) in Madang travelling on a pilgrimage to Rome on 14-21 June for the Year of Faith have asked to pray with Pope Francis at his usual morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta while in Rome.

The group of students from Arts, Health and Business faculties will visit Vatican City (Basilica, Musei, etc.), Rome, Assisi, and Nettuno to pray at the tomb of St. Maria Goretti, who is patron of the youth in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands.

The request for prayer with the Pope has been forwarded through the Apostolic Nunciature channels on 1st May.
