Address of His Holiness Pope Francis
at the Ecumenical and Interreligious Meeting
Apostolic Nunciature, Nairobi

Thursday 26 November 2015

Dear Friends,

I am grateful for your presence this morning and for the opportunity to share these moments of reflection with you.  In a particular way, I wish to thank Archbishop Wabukala and Professor El-Busaidy for their words of welcome offered on your behalf, and on behalf of their communities.  It is always important to me that, when I come to visit the Catholic faithful of a local Church, I have an occasion to meet the leaders of other Christian communities and religious traditions.  It is my hope that our time together may be a sign of the Church’s esteem for the followers of all religions; may it strengthen the bonds of friendship which we already enjoy.

Pope Francis landed in Kenya to begin his first tour of Africa to a rousing welcome from Kenyans who thronged the Jomo Kenyatta International airport to receive him.

Mbuya Parish choir is among the team of five choirs that the Catholic Church has selected to sing during the three-day visit of Pope Francis to Uganda later this year.

All choirs have been drawn from parishes within Kampala Archdiocese, the ecclesiastic province in which the Pope will be hosted. 

Each choir was requested to send 30 of its members, Lugazi-Mukono Diocese Bishop Christopher Kakooza, who is in charge of Liturgy for the Papal visit, said in various letters he wrote to parish priests of the selected choirs.

Pope Francis has confirmed his visit to Kenya, Uganda, and the Central African Republic in November 2015. Official word of the planned Apostolic voyage came through a two-sentence statement from the Press Office of the Holy See on Thursday. Details of the Holy Father's three-nation African tour will be released in the coming weeks.

Pope Francis has decided to set up a “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation” which will be celebrated on September 1st annually.

He made the announcement in a letter to the heads of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity.

In this way the Holy Father continues the important task of implementing the encyclical Laudato si' on the care of our common home in an ecumenical context. 

While modalities of the government of Uganda and the Papal Nuncio concerning Pope Francis visit to Uganda are awaited, international media reports on possible program of Pope visit to Uganda who is expected in the country from 27th to 29th November2015.

Pope Francis will be in Uganda to mark the 50th anniversary of the canonization of the 22 Ugandan Catholic martyrs who were executed in the 19th century. This will be a rare occasion for residents and an opportunity for tourists to see the Holy Father.
