Together - Gathering of the People of God


On 30 September 2023, an ecumenical prayer vigil will take place in Rome in the presence of Pope Francis and representatives of different Churches, to unite us in praise and silence, in listening to the Word.

On January 15 after the Angelus on St Peter’s Square, Pope Francis made the following invitation:

“The path to Christian unity and the path of synodal conversion of the Church are linked. I would like to take this opportunity to announce that on Saturday 30 September, an ecumenical prayer vigil will be held on St. Peter’s Square, with which we will entrust the work of the 16th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. For the young people coming to the vigil, there will be a special programme throughout that weekend, entrusted to the Taizé community. As of now, I invite brothers and sisters of all Christian denominations to participate in this “Gathering of the People of God.”


Everyone is invited to the prayer vigil on Saturday 30 September in St Peter’s Square.


Young people aged between 18 and 35 from across Europe, from all Church backgrounds, are invited from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon and will be welcomed for a weekend of sharing, to journey together as the people of God.


Registration for the event is open until September 1st - click here for more details

If you live in Rome, there are many ways to help in the preparation of the Gathering:


  • You can get involved in the prepation of the Gathering in your local parish or community - click here for more information.
  • You can welcome the participants of the meeting in your house. 
    Thousands of young pilgrims will arrive in Rome to participate in the Gathering. These young adults (aged 18 to 35) are pilgrims, not tourists. They can sleep on the floor. It is the welcome that counts, not the level of comfort. They only need two breakfasts and then lunch on Sunday 1 October.
