Pope to pay 5-day visit to southern Cyprus, Greece next month

ANKARA – Pope Francis is scheduled to embark on a five-day visit to the Greek Administration of Southern Cyprus and Greece, the Vatican press office said on Friday.

Next month’s visit (Dec. 2-6) comes upon the invitation of the countries’ “civil authorities and Bishops’ Conferences,” said a statement by the Holy See Press Office.

The Pope is also expected to visit a refugee camp at the Greek island of Lesbos. It will be his second visit since 2016.

Earlier this year, the Pontiff visited Iraq, Hungary, and Slovakia. (Anadolu)
