Pope will visit Croatia next year

Catholic World News - October 29, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI will travel to Croatia in 2011, authorities in that nation have disclosed.

In their October 29 announcement, Croatian President Ivo Josipovic and Cardinal Josip Bozanic, the president of the nation’s episcopal conference, said that the Pontiff will visit Zagreb sometime in the first six months of the coming year. Details for the papal visit have not yet been settled.

The Vatican has not officially confirmed plans for the papal trip. Traditionally the Vatican does not make a formal announcement of a papal voyage until several weeks before it takes place.
