Three thousand students to welcome Pope to Santiago de Compostela

.- Some 3,000 students from public and private schools in the Spanish region of Galicia will welcome Pope Benedict XVI to the city of Santiago de Compostela on Nov. 6.

The students will line the streets to see the Pope as he travels from the Lavacolla Airport to the Cathedral of Santiago. The Archdiocese of Santiago has said that the public is free to greet the Pope as he makes the seven-mile journey in the popemobile. 

Specific areas along the motorcade route have been designated for various groups, including a section for those from other Spanish dioceses, sections for various parishes of Santiago and a section for 3,000 students who will welcome the Pope to the city.

The Holy Father is scheduled to arrive at the Lavacolla Airport at 11:30 a.m. local time, where he will be greeted by the Prince and Princess of Asturias and the Archbishop of Santiago. He will deliver his first speech on the tarmac and then have a private meeting with the prince and princess at the airport.

The following day, the Pope will visit Barcelona.
