To Request a Papal Blessing

Papal blessings are available through the Rockford Catholic Diocese for people residing in this diocese. A letter from the parish pastor must be sent to the Chancery requesting a Papal Blessing.

List all pertinent information including:
  • Name(s) of the person(s) (Do not use maiden names of brides)
  • Parish where sacrament took place (must include city and state)
  • Occasion (must be current, requests for marriages, occasions which occurred years ago can not be sent)

Diocese of Rockford
Papal Blessings
P.O. Box 7044

Payment MUST be included with the request before it is sent to Rome.
There are two sizes available of Papal Blessings (must specify):
  • M4 size (9" x 11 ¾") and R2 size (11" x 15 ¾") both are $55.00.
Checks should be made payable to the Diocese of Rockford. Please allow six months for delivery. Because the requests are sent to Rome, Rockford Diocesan officials have no control over when requests are filled and completed. All blessings are sent directly to the parish immediately after they arrive at the Chancery.
