Prayers elsewhere

If you cannot come to Rome, there are other ways of participating, for example, by organising a prayer vigil in your own locality on September 30 in solidarity and communion with those who will gather in Rome and by taking part in the different stages of preparation.

See the page on Prayers elsewhere and the section “How can we prepare?”
