Lighter summer schedule for Pope

Catholic World News - June 16, 2014

The Holy See Press Office has announced that the Pope will have a lighter schedule during the months of July and August.

During the five Wednesdays in July, Pope Francis will not hold his weekly general audiences. They will resume on August 6.

In addition, during the months of July and August, Pope Francis will not publicly celebrate daily Masses with different groups of the faithful in Domus Sanctae Marthae.

However, the Pope will continue to deliver his weekly Sunday Angelus address at the Vatican throughout July and August, and from August 13-18, he will make an apostolic journey to South Korea.
