CWN Editor's Note: A day after confirming—for the second time—that Pope Francis will visit Kazakhstan in September, the Vatican press office has announced the program for the three-day apostolic journey.

Pope Francis will take part in the 7th Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions. He will also meet with civil authorities, celebrate an outdoor Mass, meet publicly with clergy, religious, and lay pastoral workers, and meet privately with his Jesuit confrères.

Kazakhstan, a Central Asian nation of 19.2 million (map, article), is 71% Muslim and 25% Christian (24% Orthodox).
