Archdiocese requesting volunteers to assist with papal visit to Barcelona

.- The Archdiocese of Barcelona has issued an appeal for additional volunteers to help out with Pope Benedict XVI's Nov. 6 and 7 visit to the city.

During his visit to Barcelona, the Holy Father will consecrate the Church of the Holy Family, which was designed by architect Antonio Gaudi, whose cause for beatification is ongoing.

Noting the importance of collaboration on the part of volunteers, the archdiocese said, “The organization of an event such as this involves numerous issues that must be addressed through the selfless collaboration of many people, both in the preparation beforehand up until the moment of conclusion.”

Javier Porro, the director of youth ministry for the archdiocese, said anyone between the ages of 16 and 36 is welcome to volunteer.
