Vatican publishes Pope Francis' intense itinerary in Perú
Pope Francis will arrive at the Lima airport on Thursday afternoon, January 18.
On Friday morning, he will meet with the president of Perú and other public figures before leaving for Puerto Maldonado in the middle of the Amazon. The pope will meet with representatives of indigenous populations there.
On Saturday, Pope Francis will travel to Trujillo, in the north. He will visit those affected by the El Niño storm, the strong rains that left 100 dead and 141,000 displaced in early 2017.
On Sunday, the last day of the trip, Pope Francis will celebrate Mass at Las Palmas Air Base in front of the image of the Lord of the Miracles. This will be the pope's last ceremony before returning to Rome, where he is scheduled to arrive shortly after 2 p.m. on January 22.
