Pope Francis to visit Africa in November

Pope Francis to visit Africa in November

Pope Francis will tour a Kenyan slum, meet with Muslims and evangelical Christians and visit a refugee camp in the conflict-torn Central African Republic during his first trip to Africa next month, the Vatican said Saturday.

Francis will also pay tribute to Uganda’s martyrs during the three-nation trip Nov. 25-30 that will bring him face to face for the first time with the effects of Islamic extremism and Christian-Muslim violence on the continent.


The Vatican on Saturday unveiled the itinerary of the whirlwind trip that will pose security risks that have largely been absent on Francis’ foreign trips to date.

Francis arrives first in Nairobi, where highlights include a tour of the Kangemi slum and a meeting with representatives of Kenya’s multifaith community.
