Hi, guys —

  • How does one write to the Pope and other Vatican officials?
  • Is there a list of contacts that the laity can access?

Thank you and I look forward to your response.

Mike replied:

Hi Lou,

Thanks for the question.

The best way is to use one of the postal mailing address we provide on one of our web pages:

I don't know of any reliable list of contacts within the Vatican.

You can get the e-mails from various bishops through their diocesan web site.
You can look each diocesan web address up from Catholic Hierarchy here:

Catholic Hierarchy Diocesan Search

You may want to check with your local diocese to see if they have any additional contact information.

Sorry, that's the best I can do.

If someone from inside the Vatican reads Lou's question and can provide better information than
I have provided on my "Where do I write" page, please e-mail me.
