US President Joe Biden (center) and First Lady Jill Biden (left) speak with a priest as they leave St. Joseph’s Church at Brandywine Catholic Church in Wilmington, Delaware on June 19. U.S. Catholic Bishops on June 18 challenged President Biden for his support for abortion rights, agreeing to draft a statement on the meaning of Holy Communion that could potentially be used to deny the sacred rite to the American leader.




ROME – President Joe Biden received Communion at St. Patrick’s Church during Vigil Mass on Saturday October 30, a day after he said Pope Francis told him he should continue to take the Holy -Cene, despite the opposition of some conservatives in the United States upset by his position on abortion.

Biden and his wife, Jill, visited the English-speaking Church which is the main place of worship for the American Catholic community in Rome and is located near the United States Embassy. The president paused between events of the Group of 20 world leaders’ summit held in the city last weekend.
