Pope Francis will become the first pope in history to visit the Arabian Peninsula when he travels to the United Arab Emirates for his 27th apostolic journey during February 3-5, 2019.
The theme chosen for this visit is “Make Me a Channel of Your Peace”. Occurring during the United Arab Emirates’ 2019 “Year of Tolerance,” this papal voyage is an ecumenical mission to promote a culture free of religious fundamentalism and to encourage ecumenical dialogue and solidarity among members of different faiths.
Highlights of the trip will include an ecumenical meeting, an official visit to the Crown Prince, a meeting in the Great Mosque of Sheikh Zayed, and celebration of Mass in Abu Dhabi.
