International Federation Una Voce: Liturgies in Rome this Thursday to Monday

This weekend is the General Assembly of the International Federation Una Voce, which takes place every two years. Mass and Vespers (and Benediction) have been arranged from before the start to after the end of the GA; the music has been sponsored by the Latin Mass Society which has arranged a pilgrimage to Rome to coincide with the General Assembly.

Some of the celebrants are still to be confirmed, but as you will see Cardinal Brandmüller, Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos, and Archbishop Pozzo, are among them.

The Casa Maria Immacolata is the venue for the General Assembly itself, and where most delegates are staying; it is located on the Via Enzio (28), near the Vatican: map here.

Everyone is welcome to attend our Masses and other liturgies, and also to attend the 'Open Forum' on Sunday afternoon: highlighted below.
