Guild Membership

Through our advanced facilities — and with the support of individuals from around the world — the Vatican Observatory explores the furthest reaches of God’s vast creation: the planets, stars and solar systems that reveal to us God’s unlimited majesty. By becoming a member of the Vatican Observatory Guild with an annual contribution of US $25 or more, you will support the important research, education and public awareness initiatives that are helping to increase our understanding of the wonder and beauty of the universe God has given us.


Benefits of Membership

Newsletters - Currently prepared twice a year, the VOF sends all Guild members a copy of each printed newsletter with information on research, events and special activities of the Vatican Observatory.

Invitations to Special Events - Guild members receive invitations to special events such as presentations by Vatican Observatory staff in their area. Please provide email and telephone information to be sure to receive such invitations.

While supplies last Guild members may also order the Official Calendar of the Vatican Observatory: When displayed in offices and homes, the calendar is a great reminder of the majesty and awe of the universe…and of the important dialogue between faith and science.
