Pope Francis will be visiting Malta on the 31st of May in his first official visit to the islands.
The date for the highly-anticipated visit was announced by President George Vella in a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Charles Scicluna on the Feast of St Paul’s Shipwreck.
Vella read the date out as part of an official joint declaration written by the Vatican and the Archdiocese of Malta as the official logo of the visit was released as well.
