          VATICAN (CWNews.com) -- Pope John Paul II will visit 20 different towns during his June trip to Poland, according to the schedule for that trip, made public today by the Vatican.

  • On June 8 he will celebrate the liturgy with Eastern-rite Catholics in Siedlce, near Warsaw, and take part in ecumenical ceremonies in Drohiczyn.

  • On June 11, in Warsaw, he will meet with the Polish president and parliament, and visit memorials dedicated to victims of World War II and of the Holocaust. He will end the day at a meeting of the synod of the Polish Church, in the Warsaw cathedral.

  • On June 13, again in Warsaw, he will beatify 108 martyrs of the Nazi Holocaust.

  • On June 14, he will celebrate a Mass marking the 1000th anniversary of the Archdiocese of Krakow.
