The Holy Year 2025 is approaching and preparations are well underway.
At a press conference held on Tuesday, 9 May, in the Holy See Press Office, officials of the Section for Fundamental Questions regarding Evangelization in the World of the Dicastery for Evangelization detailed several of the projects envisioned and the preparatory work achieved so far. Speaking at the conference, Archbishop Rino Fisichella, the Pro-Prefect of the Dicastery’s Section in charge of coordinating the Vatican’s efforts for the event, said that preparations are proceeding at full speed and are progressing significantly. One of the highlights of the conference was the presentation of the Calendar of the Holy Year, though for the moment it only covers major jubilee events (Jubilee of young people, movements, confraternities, catechists, the world of work, schools). It will be gradually updated as the Jubilee year approaches. Visitors will be able to request information on the Jubilee Year, at a Pilgrims Center — Info Point to be inaugurated on June 1 in the premises of Via della Conciliazione 7, in front of Saint Peter’s Basilica. As of 10 May, information can also be found on the Jubilee website: www.iubilaeum2025.va
