Pope Francis has kicked off his second day in Morocco with a private visit to the “Center Rural des Services Sociaux” (Rural Center of Social Services) in the town of Témara.
The Holy Father at 9:30 am local time, left from the Apostolic Nunciature by car to go toward the center managed by the Daughters of Charity, which offers various social services thanks to the sisters and numerous volunteers.
Upon his arrival, four sisters who work in the center and two children who offered him flowers, welcomed the Holy Father.
As Pope Francis went to greet the sick children, a choir of 150 children sang a song.
Before leaving the center, Pope Francis greeted the sisters, volunteers and parents of the children.
Francis then left by car to go to the Cathedral of Rabat for the meeting with clergy and male and female religious, and the World Council of Churches.
ZENIT’s Director of the French Edition, Anita Bourdin, is following the trip to Morocco from the Papal Flight.
