The Vatican announced Saturday that Pope Francis will visit Hungary for the second time, from April 28-30.
According to the Feb. 27 announcement, the three-day papal trip to Budapest will include meetings with Hungary President Katalin Novák, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, a private visit with children at the Blessed László Batthyány-Strattmann Institute, and meetings with poor people and migrants, young people, clergy, academics, and members of the Society of Jesus.
Pope Francis returns to the central European country after a short visit in 2021 for the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress.
The pope spent just under seven hours in Budapest to celebrate the congress’ closing Mass on Sept. 12 before embarking on a three-day trip to the neighboring country of Slovakia.
