Schedule set for Pope's visit to Sardinia on September 22

Catholic World News - September 11, 2013

The Vatican has released the full schedule for a September 22 visit by Pope Francis to Sardinia.

At a public audience on May 15, the Pope announced his plan to visit Sardinia, to pray at the shrine of Our Lady of Bonaria. He said that his native town of Buenos Aires was named after the Virgin on Bonaria.

The Pope will leave Rome early in the morning on September 22, for a 45-minute flight to Cagliari. After meeting with city officials he will travel to the Marian shrine, and celebrate Mass there. After lunch with the bishops of Sardinia he will hold separate meetings with the poor, cultural leaders, and young people, before his return flight takes him back to Rome in the evening.
