On Tuesday, 30th March, 2010, the Organizing Committee for the Pope’s visit announced the events planned for the Pope’s visit to Saint Paul’s Church & Grotto in Rabat, on the 17th April. The venue was chosen by Pope Benedict XVI himself, who expressed his interest in visiting the Grotto below the Church.

Around 350 missionaries: priests, nuns and laypeople, are expected to attend for this meeting with the Pope. Afterwards the Pope wil devote some time for prayer at the Grotto. The activities happening inside the Church will be broadcast ‘live’ on TV and in Rabat village square for all those present.
