Day Two

On the second day the Holy Father is going to St Mary's University College, Twickenham, where he will pray with representatives of religious congregations - particularly those who have a charism for education. He will meet 3,000 young people to celebrate Catholic education and, later, the leaders of other religions. The Pope will also meet with the Archbishop of Canterbury and, as part of the State visit, address British society.
