Vatican City, Oct 26, 2016 / 09:48 am
The Vatican will host a concert for the poor and homeless of Rome next month, not only using the concert to raise money for Pope Francis' charities, but also inviting the poor to attend as the guests of honor.
Called "With the Poor and for the Poor," free-will donations taken at the end of the concert will benefit Pope Francis' charitable projects: this year, the building of a new cathedral in Moroto, Uganda, and an agrarian school in Burkina Faso.
The concert will take place Nov. 12 in the Vatican's Paul VI Hall.
Following the concert, volunteers of the Jubilee of Mercy and members of the choir of the Diocese of Rome will distribute a meal and a small gift to the invited guests as a reminder of the evening.
