Laetare Sunday Events, in Rome and in Virginia.

1. As we had already announced here, on the Fourth Sunday in Lent (Laetare Sunday), March 30, 2014 at 11am, a Solemn Pontifical Mass will be celebrated at Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini, the Parish of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter (FSSP) in Rome, by his Excellency, the Most Reverend Matteo Zuppi, Titular Bishop of Villanova and Auxiliary Bishop for Diocese of Rome (in charge of the City Center).

It is a very important occasion because this time it is the auxiliary bishop responsible for the sector himself who will celebrate this Pontifical Mass, a first for a bishop of the Diocese of Rome in the past decades. A strong, loving and heartfelt presence of the faithful is to be desired.
