Pope Francis

Pope Francis will be visiting the island republic of Singapore from September 11 to 13 this year, according to the Communications Office of the Archdiocese of Singapore, issued on Friday, April 12.

“With great jubilation and thanksgiving, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore is delighted to share this joyful news with the faithful in Singapore,” the press release said. 

“It has been 38 years since we had a visit from the Vicar of Christ to Singapore, when Pope John Paul II honoured us with a visit on November 20, 1986. It is my hope that this visit of the Holy Father, Pope Francis, will bring renewed fervour to all Catholics in Singapore, uniting them in faith and mission, especially in these most challenging of times,” said Cardinal William Goh, Archbishop of Singapore.

According to the announcement, the highlight of the papal visit will likely be a Eucharistic celebration with his flock on September 12, 2024, in addition to official state engagements.

“As we prepare for His Holiness’ visit, let us, as a community, pray for the continued health and safety of the Holy Father and ask the Lord to grant us a truly meaningful and grace-filled visit,” it said.

Earlier, it was reported that Archbishop Paul R. Gallagher, the Vatican’s Secretary for Relations with States and International Organizations, disclosed Asia's journey with Pope Francis, including Indonesia,Vietnam, Timor-Leste, and Papua New Guinea

Details of the visit are still being discussed between the Singapore Government, the Holy See, and local Church officials.
