· Sunday 22 September ·
Workers, the sick, the poor and prisoners, representatives from the world of culture and young people: Pope Francis will meet with these faithful on Sunday, 22 September, on his pastoral visit to Cagliari. Following his visit to Lampedusa on 8 July, it will be his second trip in Italy as Pope, the schedule of which was announced by the Holy See Press Office. This time the Pope will be traveling to another island, the island of Sardinia. He will arrive by plane in the morning and immediately after landing at the Elmas airport will meet with workers at Largo Carlo Felice, in the historic city centre.
Then he will visit the Basilica of Our Lady of Bonaria, which is particularly connected to his hometown as Buenos Aires owes its name to the city. There he is scheduled to meet with the civil authorities outside the Basilica and with the sick inside. Then the Pope will celebrate Mass in the Square and recite the Angelus. He will have lunch with the Bishops of Sardinia at the Pontifical Regional Seminary, which will close the events of the morning. Then he will continue in the afternoon with three events: the first with the poor and prisoners in the Cathedral, the second with representatives of the world of culture at the Pontifical Faculty of Theology of Sardinia, and lastly, before leaving, with young people at Largo Carlo Felice.
