Dear user,

We are delighted for the opportunity to share with you the joy for the visit of Pope Francis to our Community, on the 11th March, marking the 50th anniversary of  Sant’Egidio.

This Sunday afternoon, Pope Francis will address the assembled Community and will celebrate the Liturgy of the Word in the church of St Maria in Trastevere.

Pope Francis will meet once more the “people of Sant’Egidio”. Together with Andrea Riccardi, who initiated the path of the Community 50 years ago in Rome, His Holiness will encounter some representatives coming from different cities of Italy and the world, followed by the youngsters of Sant’Egidio and the poor friends of the Community: refugees - here thanks to the Humanitarian Corridors – elderly, children of the “School of Peace”, people with disabilities engaged in art-studios and the homeless hosted by the Community during the days of extreme weather conditions.

The event will be streamed in nine different languages on (Italian, English, French, Spanish, German, Dutch, Indonesian, Portuguese, Russian. For following in the different languages, select the right homepage) and on the Sant’Egidio Facebook page.

It will also broadcasted live from 5pm on TV2000 channel.

Stay tuned.

The Community of Sant'Egidio
