Order of Malta Volunteer – Jubilee of Mercy

Overview of the job

The Order of Malta will be involved in the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, proclaimed by Pope Francis and opening on 8 December next. The Order’s members and volunteers will assist pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square and in the four major basilicas (Saint Peter, Saint John Lateran, Saint Paul and Saint Mary Major), just as they did during the Great Jubilee of 2000 and previous ones.


Twenty-five million pilgrims are expected to visit Rome during this Jubilee and over 2,400 men and women of the Order of Malta will be offering their time and commitment over the twelve months of the Jubilee to assist pilgrims. In total, 250 groups of volunteers will attend, with 45 people providing their services in weekly shifts, from Saturday to Saturday.
