The Catholic hierarchy plans to invite Pope Francis to visit the Philippines for the fifth centenary of the arrival of the Christianity in the archipelago, a church official said January 22, 2019, according to CBCP News.
Fr. Marvin Mejia, secretary general of the Philippine Bishops’ Conference, said that the matter will be discussed when prelates meet for their plenary assembly in Manila over the weekend.
“It will be finalized there,” Mejia said.
For the past seven years, the church has been laying out plans for the 2021 Jubilee to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the first mass and the first baptism in the Philippines.
