About the Event

On the occasion of its 50th Anniversary, the Community of Sant'Egidio in London has great pleasure in inviting you to the Thanksgiving prayer in the presence of Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia.

Vincenzo Paglia

In a long career, Archbishop Paglia has been the ecclesiastical assistant of the worldwide

Community of Sant’Egidio as well as the postulator of the cause of beatification of the martyred

Archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Arnulfo Romero. In 2000 he was ordained Bishop of Terni.

Since 2002, he has been president of the International Biblical Federation and from 2004 to

2009 he served as chairman of the Ecumenism and Dialogue commission of the Italian Bishops’

Conference. In 2012, Pope Benedict XVI made him an archbishop and appointed him as

president of the Pontifical Council for the Family. In 2016, Pope Francis appointed him to his

current roles.

We are very thankful we can celebrate the Community's 50th anniversary with him in London.
