10 Saints will be canonized at St. Peter's, the first group since Cardinal Newman's canonization in 2019.

After a hiatus of more than two years caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the canonization Mass to be held this Sunday, May 15, 2022, in St. Peter’s Square will revive the tradition of grouped canonizations, usually held in May and October. Ten new saints will be proclaimed, including five Italians, one Indian, one Dutchman and three Frenchmen.

The last rite of canonization was on October 13, 2019: five new saints were proclaimed then, among them Cardinal John Henry Newman.
