Closing celebration

Pope Benedict XVI is inviting all of the world's priests to Rome June 9-11 for the closing celebration of the Year for Priests. The Congregation for the Clergy announced the program of the three-day event on Friday, Aug. 14.

On June 9, clergy will meet at the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Wall for prayer, meetings, adoration and Mass based on the theme "Conversion and Mission." 

On June 10, they'll gather at the Basilica of St. Mary Major to address "The Cenacle: The Invocation of the Holy Spirit in Union with Mary and in Fraternal Communion" in the morning, then head to St. Peter's Square for sacred music, testimonies, adoration and a greeting from Pope Benedict.

The celebration — and the jubilee year — closes June 11 with holy Mass presided over by Pope Benedict. The theme for that day is "With Peter, in Ecclesial Communion."
