Papal Greetings for Your Newborn


< — Gubernatorial Greetings


Papal blessings from Pope Francis are not available for a child to receive until he/she is baptized. However, this blessing arrives on a beautiful certificate complete with the Papal seal and signature.

Individuals must visit their diocese’s Chancery Office or call the parish secretary for guidance on making this special request. It is recommended that requests are written on parish letterhead, with the parish seal, and include the pastor’s signature. While there is a cost for this, proceeds go directly to charity. Prices range from $25 to $50, depending on the format chosen (printed certificate vs. parchment with calligraphy).

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Arlington is made up of 69 parishes, including those in Fairfax and Loudoun County and its contact information is as follows: 200 North Glebe Rd., Arlington, VA 22203.

To contact the Chancery directly, please send an email to [email protected] or call (703) 841-2500.
