Pastoral visit of the Holy Father to Carpi – Floral tribute to the Monument to earthquake victims, 02.04.2017

At the end of the encounter in the square in front of the Duomo of Mirandola, with the populations affected by the earthquake, the Holy Father Francis transferred by car to the parish of San Giacomo in Roncole to lay a floral tribute to the Monument commemorating the victims of the earthquake, situated in the area adjacent to the parish.

Then, after farewell greetings from the authorities who had received him in the morning, at 17.50 he departed by helicopter from the sports field next to the parish to return to Rome.

He arrived in the Vatican heliport at 19.15.
