With the whole Catholic faithful anticipating the first Apostolic Visit of Pope Francis in the Philippines, SKY FREE VIEW, available on SKYcable and Destiny Cable, brings every Filipino family the opportunity to witness each moment of this inspiring event.
The focus of Pope Francis’ very first trip to the Philippines is to provide comfort to those devastated by Typhoon Haiyan and the Bohol Earthquake that struck the Visayas region in 2013. The Pope’s stay stretches from January 15 to 19, 2015, ensuring that the healing message of Christ reaches those in need. The Apostolic Visit’s highlight is a luncheon with typhoon survivors at the Archbishop’s Residence in Palo, Leyte on January 17.
On January 16, the Pope’s itinerary includes a Holy Mass with the Catholic Bishops and Priests at the Manila Cathedral, followed by a Meeting with the Families at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. His return to Manila on January 18 concludes with a Holy Mass in Rizal Park, Manila.
