(Vatican Radio)  The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Greg Burke, said Friday that Pope Francis will hold an audience with the heads of State and government of the European Union on March 24, 2017.

The EU leaders will be in Rome to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome.

Their audience with Pope Francis is to take place in the Sala Regia of the Apostolic Palace on the eve of a summit marking the EU’s founding treaty.

The Holy Father previously addressed EU leaders last May at his acceptance speech for the Charlemagne prize for promoting European unity.
