Vatican Christmas and New Year Celebrations

VATICAN CITY , HOLY SEE

Pope Francis led ceremonies for Christmas from the Vatican adapted to Covid-19 prevention measures. Christmas Night Mass was anticipated to 18.30 GMT (19.30 Rome time), and participation in person to all ceremonies was very limited. Due to painful sciatica, Francis did not lead the First Vespers and Te Deum on 31 December, nor the Holy Mass on 1 January, which were instead presided over by His Eminence Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re and His Eminence Cardinal Pietro Parolin respectively.
