Pope Francis in the Philippines: Official itinerary

The Philippines will be welcoming Pope Francis in a week, with his visit marked by a number of engagements, particularly meetings with the survivors of natural calamities like the Bohol earthquake and super typhoon Yolanda.
His five-day trip here will be his third in Asia since taking the helm of the Roman Catholic Church, after visits to South Korea in August 2014, and to Sri Lanka, where he will be coming from next week.
Check out the official itinerary for his visit in this infographic produced by GMA News Online. Bear in mind, however, that it may be subject to change, given that Pope Francis is known to pull off surprises if only to reach out to more people.
