Biography

For over 500 years, the Swiss Guard has been at the service of the popes and has been watching over the Vatican. It all began in 1506 when the first Swiss arrived on request of Pope Julius II. Today, the Swiss Guard form an essential part of the Vatican and are still responsible for the personal security of the Holy Father. No visitor to the Eternal City would want to miss them. The popes 100 Swiss soldiers are a much beloved part of the Catholic Church around the world and many of its friends and supporters asked us to find ways in which they can support the various activities and needs of the Swiss guards. To this end, we have established this U.S. Foundation. Our friends and benefactors in the USA can now contribute tax free to support the Swiss Guards via this National Catholic Community Foundation supported 501 (c) 3 organization.
