POPE FRANCIS VISIT TO THAILAND - November 2019

 Pope Francis is expected to make an official trip to Thailand from 20 to 23 November 2019 ahead of an already announced visit to Japan.

 
He will be the first pontiff in nearly four decades to go to either country.
 
The late Pope John Paul visited Thailand in 1984.
 
Francis' trip to Japan, which he announced himself in January, will take him to Tokyo as well as the two cities hit by US atomic bombs at the end of World War Two - Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
 
The trip to the two countries where Catholics are a tiny minority accounting for less than half of 1% of the population, is expected to last about seven days and start around Nov 20.
 
Thailand is predominantly Buddhist and Japan is mostly Buddhist and Shinto.
 
The trip is part of Francis' push to increase dialogue with other religions in order to promote world peace.
 
The stop in Thailand will coincide with the 350th anniversary of the founding of the "Mission de Siam" by Pope Clement IX to oversee missions in Siam, the former name of Thailand.
 
To allow pilgrims to see the Pope in Thailand and commemorate the work of the Catholic Church in Thailand, Guidepost Tours have arranged a group programme which includes attendance at the main events and Mass celebrated by Pope Francis as well as sightseeing to the Catholic shrines, cathedrals and other sites around Bangkok. A full programme will be confirmed as soon as dates have been released by the Vatican.
