The Pontifical Council for Culture has announced plans to sponsor a variety of sports events, including a relay-race in St. Peter’s Square on October 20 and the Vatican’s own cricket team.
The relay race will run up the Via della Conciliazione into St. Peter’s Square, where participants will be greeted by Pope Francis at the conclusion of his Sunday audience. Msgr.
