Papal Visit – Walking together

Appwapp was responsible for the majority of the digital elements related to the papal visit to Canada July 2022.

This included working with localized teams across multiple time zones prior to the event (Alberta, Ontario, and Vatican), as well as during the event (Alberta, Quebec). 

L’interface d’administration permet à l’ADISQ de mettre à jour tout le contenu et d’être complètement autonome pour chaque événement.

A long preparatory work

We worked with the Papal Visit team to develop the best web strategies for easy volunteer management for all events, the ticketing system, newsletter communications and developing the evolution of the website before, during and after Pope Francis’ visit.

An Historic Visit

The visit, drawing on the theme of “Walking Together”, included a combination of public and private events, with an emphasis on Indigenous participation throughout the visit.

Pope Francis made a pastoral visit to Canada from July 24 to 29, 2022. The Pope’s visit provided a unique opportunity for him, once again, to listen and dialogue with Indigenous Peoples, to express his heartfelt closeness and to address the impact of colonization and the participation of the Catholic Church in the operation of residential schools throughout Canada.

About the Papal Visit

The Papal Visit to Canada secretariat has been created by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, the national assembly of the Bishops of Canada. It was founded in 1943 and officially recognized by the Holy See in 1948.

The Papal Visit team is working closely with numerous partners including the Vatican, Indigenous Elders, knowledge keepers and survivors of residential schools along with government officials at the federal, provincial and municipal levels as we prepare for this historic visit.
