Latin Vicariate: Reception of Apostolic Administrator to be limited to religious rites

Amman-The Catholic Center for Studies and Media

Owing to the difficult circumstance being experienced in our dear homeland, Jordan, as well as taking into account the sentiments of the Jordanian family and the Hatter family following the martyrdom of writer Nahed Hatter, the Latin Vicariate in Amman has decided to limit the welcoming reception of Apostolic Administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa during his official visit to the Latin Vicariate in Jordan to religious rites only.

Archbishop Pizzaballa is scheduled to arrive at the St. Mary of Nazareth Church, Sweifieh, on Friday, September 30, where special prayers will be said at 11:00am. He will then proceed to Fuheis to convey condolences to the distinguished Hattar family.

The Latin Vicariate has also announced the cancellation of the well-wishing receptions scheduled earlier on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The Apostolic Administrator will hold his first official meetings with members of the Latin Vicariate the following week. A council of priests will be elected to assist the bishop in running the affairs of the Church.
