Abp. Sample to Participate in 2016 Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage to Rome

From the Coetus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum, organizers of the annual Summorum Pontificum pilgrimage to Rome:

In 2016, the fifth pilgrimage of the Populus Summorum Pontificum to the Tomb of the Apostle Peter will coincide with the closing of the Holy Year of Mercy decreed by our Holy Father Pope Francis. Today, on the Feast of Corpus Christi in 2015, the CISP gladly announces to all the pilgrims that Archbishop Alexander K. Sample of Portland, Oregon, has accepted an invitation to join them, to guide them throughout this pilgrimage, and to cross the threshold of the Holy Door with them. The CISP thanks His Excellency for his availability and assures him of its fervent prayers, as well as of those of the pilgrims, for his apostolate and the faithful of Portland.

INFORMATION FOR 2016: Since the See of Peter will attract even more pilgrims than usual during the Holy Year, the Coetus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum has already settled the dates of its 2016 pilgrimage, in order to help the faithful from overseas make reservations ahead of time for lodgings in Rome. As usual, the pilgrimage will take place on the weekend of the Feast of Christ the King, i.e. from Thursday, October 27 to Sunday October 30, 2016.

REMINDER FOR 2015: The fourth annual pilgrimage of the Populus Summorum Pontificum in Rome will take place from Thursday, October 22 to Sunday, October 25, 2015. The pilgrimage begins as usual with Pontifical Vespers in the church of the personal parish of Santa Trinità dei Pellegrini and ends with the celebration of the feast of Christ the King in the same church on Sunday.
