Papal E-mail/Fax/Phone:

The Vatican Press Office is considered the "official" means of email contact for the Holy Father. The following email address does gain a response.

phone: +390669881022
fax: +390669885373

Press Office Mailing Address where the email (listed above) and incoming calls/faxes are received:

Pontificio Consiglio delle Comunicazioni Sociali
Palazzo San Carlo - 00120 Città del Vaticano

Side note : When contacting the Holy Father, people should be advised to NOT place the word ITALY anywhere on the envelope. If they do this, the mail is re-routed because the Vatican is it's own nation and Italy is of course completely separate, especially as it has to do with postal mail. Italy is notorious for mis-routing mail addressed to the nation of Vaticano. Just thought you might like to know.
