Pope's schedule: Few events planned... and more room for surprises

2016-10-17

Aside from his daily Masses at Casa Santa Marta and the General Audience on Wednesday, the Pope has no special events scheduled.

That means we may be in for surprises. The pope might decide to do his monthly visit to people in need. Even though he went to central Italy on October 4 to visit the quake-stricken towns on, he might do another outing like the one he did in September to the San Giovanni hospital for newborns in Rome. It is expected that during the last days of the week  many pilgrim groups will come to Rome, hurrying to cross the Holy Door before the Year of Mercy ends. This is the case for choirs and health service workers.

The only other event in schedule is the monthly Jubilee Audience that he has been celebrating throughout this Holy Year. 

On Sunday, Pope Francis will conclude the week with the Angelus prayer in St. Peter's Square.
