2020 Ad Limina

 

On February 10-14, bishops from Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming will be in Rome for their ad limina visits. An ad limina (“to the threshold of the apostles”) visit is an obligatory visit made by all bishops to Rome during which they pray at the tombs of Saint Peter and Saint Paul. In addition, they meet with Pope Francis and Vatican officials. We hope you will find each day’s highlights interesting and will prayerfully join Bishop Berg and members of his leadership team by reading the daily articles, watching video highlights, and praying for Bishop Berg and the Diocese of Pueblo. The articles and videos will be posted below in real-time.

Bishop Berg assures you of his prayers as he visits the tomb of Saint Peter and will greet the Holy Father on behalf of the faithful of the Diocese.
