RCC - Pole position in Cuba

Vatican Secretary of State

in Cuba

February 20, 2008 - "BY invitation of the Cuban government and the Cuban Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Secretary of State of the Vatican, is to arrive in Havana this evening.

The visit, of an official and pastoral nature, is taking place as part of the commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Pope John Paul II’s historic journey to this country.

At the same time it is a reflection of the excellent relations and the fluid, cordial and respectful communication that exists between Cuba and the Vatican state.

During his stay in Cuba, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone will meet with Cuban authorities and participate in church activities in Havana, Villa Clara, Santiago de Cuba and Guantánamo".
