As there have been many requests for information about tickets to the actual Canonisation event, the following may be helpful.
Harvest Pilgrimages have been appointed the official travel operator for Mary MacKillop’s canonisation in Rome on October 17th.
For those booking with Harvest, the Official tour operator
If you are booking with Harvest, a ticket to the canonisation will be included in your travel package and delivered to your hotel in Rome. You do not need to make any further application.
For those making their own travel arrangements
If you are making separate travel arrangements in Australia or from any country to travel to Rome, you are invited to go to www.canonisationtravel.com so that you can apply online for the free ticket to the canonisation.
If you apply on this site it will assist us in planning for the total number of pilgrims expected in Rome to celebrate Mary MacKillop’s canonisation.
All applications to Harvest for tickets to the canonisation will receive an initial confirmation acknowledgment by email. Harvest will obtain tickets on your behalf and you will receive further information by email in September telling you where you will be able to collect your tickets in Rome in the days before the canonisation ceremony.
The tickets are not released by the Vatican until the week before the ceremony.
Any enquiries about tickets can be direct by email to Harvest at http://www.canonisationtravel.com.au/canonisation-ticket-info.html
