Pope's Rio Trip to Include a Stop at One of Poorest Favelas

Last edited 24th May 2013

Pope Francis’ program during WYD2013 will include a visit to the parish of Varginha, located in the favela of Manguinhos, one of the poorest of Rio. While there the Holy Father will lead a prayer in the parish of Saint Jerome Emilian, where he will bless the new altar. He will also spend some time talking with the leaders of the community and its inhabitants. He will walk on a street of Varginha to a soccer field where there will be a stage from which he will address a few words to the slum-dwellers. There will not be any special security fences, and if the Pope so wishes, he will be able to go into some of the homes.
