Pope Francis is going to visit the Baltic States this September and will spend a day in Latvia on September 24. In order to inform about the visit Information Centre of Roman Catholic Church in Latvia has set up a special website devoted to the pastoral visit which has its English version too.

Visitors of the website can follow the news, preparations and upcoming events planned until September, and get to know about how and when to register in order to take part in the Holy Mass celebrated by the Pope in Aglona on September 24. The registration will open from July 8 till August 19 and will be possible either in the catholic parishes or website

Starting from April inhabitants of Latvia can follow accounts Pāvests Latvijā 2018 (Pope Francis in Latvia 2018) on Facebook and Twitter where news about preparation of the pastoral visit are posted. Each month is devoted to a specific theme Pope Francis has addressed. The first month was devoted to mercy, while this month users of social media can get to know what the Pope has written and said about ecology. Reflections on justice, family and peace will follow later.
