Catholic Church announces pilgrimage on anniversary of papal visit

The Hungarian Catholic Bishops' Conference (MKPK) announced a national pilgrimage to Rome on the anniversary of Pope Francis's visit to Hungary between April 23 and 25.

Mass will be celebrated in Hungarian in one of the large basilicas in Rome on each day of the pilgrimage, with the last one held in St Peter’s Cathedral, the MKPK said in a statement after its regular spring meeting on Thursday. The pontiff will receive the pilgrims in the Paul VI Audience Hall on April 25.

Noting that Pope Francis had declared 2025 a Jubilee year, the MKPK said that in preparation to those events, the Hungarian Catholic Church will participate in the first World Day of Children, held on the last weekend of May.
