Archbishop Mark collects pallium from Rome

June 27 - July 1

Archbishop Mark O’Toole journeys to Rome for meetings with the Roman Curia and then joins Pope Francis for Pontifical Mass celebrating the Solemnity of Ss. Peter & Paul (June 29th), during which the Pallia are blessed by the Holy Father and afterwards presented to new Metropolitan Archbishops as a sign of their unity with the Holy See.  In a change to former practice, Archbishop Mark will not have the pallium placed on him by the Holy Father, but simply presented to carry home, where it will be placed upon his shoulders later this year by the Papal Nuncio in the midst of the people.
