Pope Francis marries young deaf couple at chapel in his own residence

The Pope last presided over a wedding two years ago

Pope Francis has married a young deaf couple in the chapel of his residence at the Vatican.

Teodoro Pisciottani and Paulina Szczepanska, the daughter of a Vatican employee, were married on July 9 at the Vatican’s Domus Sanctae Marthae.

Pope Francis does not often preside over wedding ceremonies – the most recent was a wedding of 20 couples in St Peter’s Basilica in 2014 that was televised on Vatican television.

The private wedding in July was reported in a regional online news site, ondanews.it, for Salerno, Italy. Pisciottani is from Salerno.

The couple have been active in cultural initiatives for the deaf community in Padova, in northern Italy, including a version of Big Brother for the deaf.
