In the afternoon of Saturday, October 3, 2020, the Holy Father Francis will visit Assisi to sign the new Encyclical, “All Brothers”, on fraternity and social friendship. The announcement of the event was made September 5 by the Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni.
The prefecture of the Pontifical Household states that at 3:00 p.m. the Holy Father will arrive at the Sacred Convent, where he will celebrate Holy Mass at the tomb of Saint Francis, and at the end, e will sign the Encyclical.
Due to the health situation, it is the Holy Father’s wish that the visit should take place in a private form, without any participation of the faithful.
As soon as the celebration is over, the Holy Father will return to the Vatican.
