On the 1st of May, Memorial of St Joseph the Worker, also the festa del lavoro here in Italy, the College hosted approximately four hundred guests as well as volunteers for Mass followed by lunch.

The Chief Celebrant for Mass was the Papal Almoner, Archbishop Konrad Krajewski.

This time of prayer and shared meal has gradually become an annual occasion on the Irish College Calendar. It is an opportunity for us, seminarians and priests, to minister alongside the members of the Comunità di Sant’Egidio here in Rome. Many of the seminarians at the College complete a pastoral placement with the Comunità during their time of formation in the city.
