Vatican confirms schedule for Pope's June visit to Milan

Catholic World News - May 15, 2012

The Vatican has released the full schedule for a June trip by Pope Benedict XVI to Milan, where he will participate in the 7th World Meeting of Families.

The Pope will fly from Rome to Milan on Friday afternoon, June 1. He will address the public outside the Duomo after his arrival, and in the evening he will attend a concert at La Scala opera house, scheduled in his honor.

On Saturday the Pope will join in a holy hour at the city’s cathedral and venerate the relics of St. Charles Borromeo there. After a midday meeting with young people he will address civic leaders in the afternoon, then speak at a “Celebration of Witnesses” in the evening.

Pope Benedict will celebrate Mass on Sunday at an urban park, and after lunch with bishops and some delegates to the meeting, he will meet with organizers of the event. He will return to Rome early Sunday evening, June 3.
