Father Juraj Ďurnek, Provincial of the Piarist Order in Slovakia, as the President of the Conference of Major Superiors in Slovakia, on behalf of all the Religious, took part in the pilgrimage to Rome from Slovakia in thanksgiving for the Holy Father Pope Francis’s trip to their country during the weekend of April 29 – May 1, 2022.

Bishops and representatives of public life met at the Slovak Institute of Saints Cyril and Methodius. On Saturday, at an audience in the Paul VI Audience Hall, he had the opportunity to greet and thank Pope Francis personally and to pass him prayers from the religious of Slovakia. The atmosphere was intense, as the meeting was attended by many Slovak pilgrims who conveyed words of gratitude for Pope Francis’ visit to Slovakia last year.
