Below is a list of valid postal addresses for sending a letter to the Holy Father, Pope Francis
Pope Francis PP.
00120 Via del Pellegrino
Citta del Vaticano
His Holiness Pope
His Holiness Pope Francis
Vatican City State, 00120
I have recently received many e-mail letters addressed to the Holy Father and other Vatican officials and though I wish I had a means to forward your letter to [him|them],
I do not.
I have no communication with either the Holy Father or any Vatican officials.
I haven't even met face to face with my Cardinal over the work I have done for the past 15+ years.
The best solution I can offer is for you to use the postal addresses and phone and fax numbers which may or may not work.
I'm sorry for this inconvenience.
If a creditable Vatican insider/visitor can confirm this information or send me further valid contact information for contacting the Holy Father or one of his [cardinal|bishop associates] in the Vatican Press Office or another dicastery for Social Communication whether by phone, e-mail, or fax, it would be appreciated.
This page is one of the most visited pages on my site and I would like to have good contact information if possible. I can be reached here: [email protected].
For those visiting this page please keep me in your prayers as I am financially poor.

I just called the Vatican Switchboard and the fax number they gave me to send a fax to His Holiness, Pope Francis is: 00390669882417. I don't know if this is an update for you or what. I hope this is helpful.
I also learned at the Post Office that in order to send a letter to the Holy Father via Global Express Guaranteed which goes through Fed Ex Express, you need a phone number for someone where the letter is sent. It was going to cost around $65.00. Whoever I spoke with at the Vatican said it is best to send the fax.
Thank you for your website. It is very helpful.
From another Catholic. God bless you!
