The book will be published on the Libreria Editrice Vaticana website in PDF format, and can be downloaded free of charge.

We sympathise with and remember in our prayers the families and friends who have recently lost a loved one.
During this very difficult time and in line with Government advice, funerals can only be attended by up to 10 people of immediate family of the deceased.
Please see below two links to booklets that may be of help to you when organising a loved ones funeral.
Although we can no longer be together in person,
we can stay connected and united in prayer.
