The Vatican has now completed construction work on three showers and a barber’s booth for Rome’s homeless under the colonnades of St Peter’s Square.

The showers, which will be available most days of the year, have been installed in an existing lavatory block used by pilgrims and tourists visiting the Vatican.

Nuns will welcome the homeless to the refurbished facility giving each a shower kit containing a change of underwear, towel, soap, deodorant, tooth brush and tooth paste, according to Vatican Radio.apple cake
