St Paul's Outside the Walls
First stop on this final day in Rome is the Basilica of St Paul, outside the city walls. Here there are mosaics of all 265 Popes, in order. The group is currently having a tour of this fine church, where St Paul himself is buried.
is the mother church of the Catholic Diocese of Lancaster, which stretches from Preston to the Scottish border. The Cathedral acts as a focal point for the diocese, as well as being home to a vibrant parish community. It also hosts a number of concerts and cultural events throughout the year.
