Pope Francis to be Received at the Rhythm of “Marinera” in Trujillo


At Huanchaco airport, where the Pope will arrive, Couples will dance to artists performing a song they created entitled “Messenger of God”.

Only weeks until Pope Francis’ visit and preparations are getting quite creative. Pope Francis will have an emotional reception on January 20, 2018, as soon as he steps on the tarmac of the Carlos Martínez de Pinillos airport.

The Supreme Pontiff will be received by 60 couples on the airstrip, to the rhythm of “Así baila mi trujillana”. After, in a mall, artisanal fishermen from the Huanchaco spa will offer a surprise to the Supreme Pontiff.

The Holy Fathers arrival is scheduled for 09:00 a.m. The official reception will be headed by the Metropolitan Archbishop of Trujillo, Monsignor Miguel Cabrejos Vidarte and local and regional authorities. The Pope will then go to the Esplanade of Huanchaco, at 10:00 a.m. and officiate a mass. Later he will tour the districts of Victor Larco Herrera and finally Trujillo, during the afternoon.

The Regional Government of Lambayeque will also pay homage to a sacred image. The next day, at seven o’clock in the morning, there will be a liturgical act, and the Cross of Chalpón will be carried by more than two thousand Catholics to the district of Paiján and later Trujillo.
