Pope Francis’ Apostolic Journey to Romania

From May 31 to June 2, Pope Francis will make his 30th overseas apostolic voyage to the country of Romania. The theme of the visit is “Let’s Walk Together”.

Romania is considered a developing nation and has a predominantly Romanian Orthodox Christian population. Just over 4% of the population identifies as Catholic. The last pope to visit the country was John Paul II in 1999.

Highlights will include a visit to the popular Marian Shrine of Sumuleu Ciuc, the site of an annual pilgrimage on Pentecost Sunday. Pope Francis will also celebrate Mass in both the Roman and Eastern Rites and beatify seven bishops of the Romanian Catholic tradition.
