This coming Monday is the feast of St Peter and St Paul and, in Rome, the occasion for conferring the pallium on various Archbishops. Archbishop Vincent Nichols will be there, as will Archbishop Tim Dolan and others.
One of the recipients, Archbishop Allen Vigneron of Detroit, is updating a blog about his pilgrimage. See: A Shepherd's Mission. Yesterday, he called into the NAC and prayed for his classmates, as well as visiting the Casa Sancta Maria, a college for American clergy doing further studies (which I visited last year) and stopping in to see St Philip Neri at the Chiesa Nuova.
