The Pact of the Catacombs Website
Late at night on the 16th November 1965 a group of Bishops secretly left the Vatican and met at the Domitillia Catacombs on the edge of Rome.
There they celebrated mass and signed a secret document that carried the light and hope of Vatican II.
That document carried within it, a commitment to return to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, abandoning the trappings of institution and becoming once again a poor servant church for and with the people.
That document was ‘The Pact of the Catacombs'
