ognissanti-roma-436x290As Vatican Radio reports,

Pope Francis’ historic visit to the Anglican church of All Saints in central Rome on Sunday will be marked by the ‘twinning’ of the Church of England community with the Catholic parish of Ognissanti on the south side of the city. … He will be the first pope to visit an Anglican Church in his own Diocese of Rome.

These parishes have an almost decade long relationship with liturgies and service work shared between the two. Additionally, Ognissanti is notable for being wherePope Paul VI celebrated the first Mass in Italian in March 1965. PaulVIMass02
