Details of Pope Francis’ Two Day Visit to Turin

March 30, 2015

imageMore information about the pope’s planned two day visit were announced by Turin’s Archbishop Cesare Nosiglia on March 26th. Here, the Catholic News Agency details them:

After his arrival, Francis will make his way to the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, where he will venerate the shroud and pause for a short prayer at the tomb of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, another patron of the youth, who is buried in the cathedral.

In addition to the meeting with the Pope’s relatives [on the second day], other highlights of his trip include Mass, a meeting with prisoners – some of whom are immigrants or homeless, a visit with sick disabled persons.

Francis will also hold an encounter with the area’s youth, and will have lunch with some of them on the 21st, during which he will respond to questions they ask ahead of time.
