Pope Francis Will Go to Italian City of Carpi on April 2

The City’s Cathedral, Closed After 2012 Earthquake, Will Reopen on March 25

The Holy See Press Office announced that Pope Francis will go to visit the Diocese of Carpi on Sunday, April 2.

Just over a week before the papal visit, on March 25, 2017, in the diocese headed by Bishop Francesco Cavina, the Cathedral of Carpi, which is dedicated to Most Holy Mary Assumed, will reopen. The sacred building was damaged after the seismic events of May 2012 in Emilia.

Having been closed for almost five years, the Cathedral will be solemnly inaugurated by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican Secretary of State.
