EVENING PRAYER IN ST. PETER'S SQUARE

    VATICAN CITY, JAN 2 (ZENIT).- Since December 26, whenever there is not another event scheduled, St. Peter's Square fills each night with a group of pilgrims for evening prayer. During the winter months, the event occurs at 7:00, but it will be delayed to 7:30 in the summer.

    Jubilee volunteers wearing blue vests bearing the words, "I was a stranger and you welcomed me," distribute programs for the prayer, including the Jubilee hymn. The service lasts 30 minutes, and can also be heard on Vatican Radio. Wednesday Vespers each week will be specifically directed toward youth.

    Each evening, the prayer will be led by a different Bishop or Monsignor. The Pope is not scheduled to appear at the prayer as a general rule.

    To verify whether the event will be held on a given day, pilgrims can call +39 (06) 69 62 21. Organizers recommend that visitors arrive 30 minutes in advance. ZE00010104
