Thank you, as always, for your tremendous support of the Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums. Your dedication to your Chapter are a blessing for the Holy Father and are of critical importance to the continued vitality of our beloved Vatican Museums. Together with his Eminence Cardinal Bertello, President of the Governorate of the Vatican City State, and my colleagues in the Patron's office, we would like to recognize your generosity by extending to you an invitation to join us for the Patrons 30th Anniversary Gala Events in Rome this October.
I enclose a brochure highlighting the current plans which our office has been busy organizing with the Museums, the Pontifical Household and the Governor’s office. I personally had the blessing of greeting our new Holy Father, Pope Francis, last week and communicated to his Holiness that we are looking forward to celebrating the 30th anniversary events together with him and Cardinal Bertello this Fall. The Holy Father extended his greetings and blessings on each of you for your generosity and work as custodians of the treasures of the Vatican Museums.
In order to assure the orderly organization and proper staffing of this event, we are requiring that all registrants purchase one of the full packages outlined in the brochure. The planning committee has agreed, based on previous events, that this will ensure the efficient coordination and most enjoyable execution of all these special events. Additionally, the costs associated with producing the anniversary events are spread over the participants using the listed packages.
There will be limited subscription due to the physical constraints of many of our gala event venues and so I encourage you to register soon to ensure your participation. I look forward to welcoming you to Rome and, again, thank you for your support of the Patrons and this 30th Anniversary Gala Event.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
The Vatican Museums and International Chapter of the Patrons of the Arts
