Charity Lottery 4th Edition


Fourth Annual Lottery for the Holy Father’s Charities

Once again this year we announce a special project of solidarity: the fourth annual Lottery on behalf of the Holy Father’s Charities. The project coincides with the conclusion of the Jubilee Year of Mercy and with this year’s Christmas festivities, a time for gestures of solidarity and sharing. The Holy Father expressed his wish that the funds collected be used, in part, to assist those affected by the earthquakes that struck central Italy on 24 August, in part, to aid the homeless, and to this end he personally donated some of the prizes. The lottery will open during the upcoming weeks and will close on 2 February 2017 with the winning tickets being drawn in the presence of a commission set up for this purpose in order to guarantee fairness.

Tickets will be sold at €10 apiece in the Vatican, at the pharmacy, the post offices, the telephone services, the “Annona” and the “Station” stores, the sales points of the Philatelic and Numismatic Office and the bookshop at the Vatican Museums. New this year – thanks to the efforts of the Directorate of Communications – Vatican Internet Service Provider and of the Accounting Directorate – is the possibility of purchasing tickets on-line at »Charity Lottery for the Holy Father's Charities«
