Pope Francis will visit Armenia June 24-26. Pope Francis has asked the faithful to pray for his upcoming trip to Armenia.
“I ask you to pray for me, who in a few days will go as a pilgrim to an eastern land, Armenia, the first among the Nations to receive the Gospel of Jesus,” he said at an audience for the Reunion of Aid Agencies For the Eastern Churches.
