The Vatican Press Office is considered the official means of e-mail contact for the Holy Father.

phone: +390669881022

Press Office Mailing Address where the e-mail (listed above) and incoming calls/faxes are received:

Pontificio Consiglio delle Comunicazioni Sociali
Palazzo San Carlo - 00120 Città del Vaticano

Side note: When sending mail to the Holy Father do not place the word Italy on the envelope.
The Vatican is an independent nation and Italy's mail system routinely misroutes mail addressed
to the nation of Vaticano. Just thought you would like to know this.


From others who have e-mailed me on this issue.

I just called the Vatican Switchboard and the fax number they gave me to send a fax to His Holiness, Pope Francis is: 00390669882417. I don't know if this is an update for you or what. I hope this is helpful.

I also learned at the Post Office that in order to send a letter to the Holy Father via Global Express Guaranteed which goes through Fed Ex Express, you need a phone number for someone where the letter is sent. It was going to cost around $65.00. Whoever I spoke with at the Vatican said it is best to send the fax.

Thank you for your website. It is very helpful.

From another Catholic. God bless you!
