Follows much-acclaimed trip to migrant island Lampedusa23 August, 19:30
The private visit will take place September 10 at the Centro Astalli, which is run by Jesuits. The pope is following through on a promise he made to visit the center in April, center manager Giovanni La Manna told ANSA.
To much acclaim, last month Francis made his first papal visit outside the Rome area to a processing center for migrants on the Sicilian island of Lampedusa, where he celebrated mass and prayed for the thousands who cross the Mediterranean from North Africa each year.
