Celebrate the Papal Visit anniversary – and win the Photobook too!


Next Friday is the 1st anniversary of Pope Benedict’s state visit to the UK.

On the official website, you can find plenty of information about the various events and initiatives which celebrate this important date. Most importantly the Bishop Conference of England and Wales have taken this opportunity to encourage Catholics to re-discover Friday penance.

Here at CTS, we wanted to celebrate by having a competition with a free copy of the Official Record of the Papal Visit as the prize. We want to hear what your favourite moment of the Papal Visit was and then we would like you to describe the visit in three words. Our editors will decide which are the best entries.

Once before when this blog began, we gave away the photo book as a prize and the response was excellent, so between now and next Friday, give us your entry either in the comments box here or on Facebook and you can enjoy this souvenir book for free!

  1. My Favourite moment was wallking as a pilgrim towards Cofton Park in Birmingham. It was so early in the morning that it was still dark with people everywhere stumbling up the hill and it felt so apocalyptic with expectation heavy in the drizzling air. Then the Pope came after all the waiting:

  2. My favourite moment was Eucharistic Adoration in Hyde Park, a small dress rehearsal for what happened at WYD!

    My description of the visit in three words:
