Pope Francis

At a glance

Pope Francis has summoned the College of Cardinals to the Vatican.  From August 27-30, the Holy Father will preside over three consistories and a pastoral visit.

On August 27, Pope Francis will convene two consistories; on August 28, he will make a pastoral visit to L’Aquila, and on August 29 and 30, he will preside over a third consistory.

An ordinary consistory includes members of the College of Cardinals. It can be open to the public, which means it is convened to formalize a papal decision or discuss routine matters.

Notably, these historic consistories, led by Pope Francis, will guide the direction of the Catholic Church and have an impact for generations to come.
