Pope's Schedule: Visit to the World Food Programme on Monday

2016-06-13

Pope Francis faces a busy week that will start early on Monday with a visit to the World Food Programme, which is based in the southern part of Rome.

The Pope will arrive at 9:30 am and meet with the leaders and workers from the organization and deliver a speech on the injustices in the distribution of food in the world.

On Wednesday, Pope Francis goes to St. Peter's Square to have his usual catechesis before thousands of  brave pilgrims that will be introduced Rome's heat this time of year. 

On Thursday, he will visit circus performers from around the world coming to Rome to experience the Jubilee. He will meet them in the morning before the performers deliver an unforgettable performance in the afternoon at St. Peter's Square. 

In the afternoon, the Pope will go to the cathedral of the Eternal City, St. John Lateran, at 7:00 p.m. He will open the Pastoral Conference of the Diocese of Rome on the theme "Community and family in the great stages of Christian initiation.”

On Saturday, the Pope will return to St. Peter's Square for the second audience with pilgrims this week.

On Sunday, Pope Francis will close the week with the Angelus prayer from the window of the Apostolic Palace.

With this agenda and private audience in the Vatican, the Pope will have very little free time during the week, which he will probably make the most of in preparation for his trip to Armenia which begins on June 24th
