Archbishop Charles J. Chaput will celebrate Mass this Sunday, March 3, at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia, for the election of a new pope. Confessions begin at 5:30 p.m. and Mass at 6:30.
All priests are invited to concelebrate and all the faithful are welcome to attend.
Guidelines have been provided to assist everyone in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia during this period of the papal transition to unite all in prayer with the Church and with one another.
Archbishop Chaput will offer an additional Mass after the election of the new pope at a date yet to be determined.
