This was the sixth year of this event, which featured a Cross vigil followed by mass led by Cardinal Joan Josep Omella i Omella, Archbishop of Barcelona.

This year’s guest was Cardinal Tagle, prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelisation of Peoples, president of Caritas International and Archbishop Emeritus of Manila (Philippines).
