The Jubilee of Catechists, which is part of the ongoing Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, took place on the St. Peter's Square from the 23rd to the 25th of September, 2016, and this event reflects on the theme based on Caravaggio's painting "The Call of Saint Matthew", offered for linguistic groups in the following churches such as the Church of San Luigi dei Francesi, the Church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva, Basilica of San Giovanni Battista dei Fiorentini, the Basilica of Sant'Andrea della Valle, the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls, and many others.

Pope Francis celebrated the Jubilee for Catechists during the Holy Mass, which occurred earlier.

The next event for the ongoing Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy will be the Marian Jubilee, happening on the 8th of October.
