Pope Francis visits Geneva
21 June 2018
Pope Francis is due to visit Geneva, Switzerland on 21 June 2018.
While in Geneva, Pope Francis will attend a meeting of the World Council of Churches (WCC), which has some 350 member churches and represents around 500 million Christians globally. The Roman Catholic Church is not a member of the WCC but it does send observers to WCC meetings. The Pope will also hold a mass at the Palexpo convention centre, which is scheduled to begin at 1530 GMT. During his visit, Pope Francis is also expected to meet with members of the Swiss government.
