Pope Francis visiting Eastern Slovakia

Pope Francis visiting Eastern Slovakia

On Tuesday morning Pope Francis arrived in Košice, a metropolis in the eastern part of the country, as part of his visit to Slovakia. In the morning, the Holy Father visited the town of Prešov, which is the seat of the Greek Catholic Metropolitan Church sui iuris in Slovakia, and celebrated the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. Later in the day, Pope was to meet with Roma in the notoriously poor Roma borough of Lunik IX, and young people at the Lokomotiva stadium in Košice.
