New date for “Economy of Francis” set for November

A new date for the Economy of Francis, in Assisi, is set for 21 November 2020.

By Francesca Merlo

The organising committee of the Economy of Francis has announced that the event, previously set for 26-28 March, will now be taking place on the 21 November in Assisi.

The change in date comes because of the difficulties many people are facing in travelling, both on an international and national level due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The Holy Father, therefore, in agreement with the committee, has set the new date of his meeting to accomodate the 2000 young people from 115 countries who are due to attend the event.

On March 28th there will be a meeting in the Papal Hall of the Sacred Convent of Assisi for a Webinar with the young people of the participating countries.
