Ad Limina Visit of the Scandinavian Bishops' Conference
Pope Francis welcomed the Bishops of northern Europe (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland) for their ad limina visit in Rome on 5-12 June 2018. Sr. Anna Mirijam Kaschner, CPS, Secretary General of the Scandinavian Bishops' Conference, had the opportunity to meet the Holy Father as well as visit the different dicasteries.
The Bishops’ Conference of the Scandinavian countries is unique in that it represents five countries in which the Catholic Church is considered to be a minority. With close to 150,000 faithful, Sweden is considered to have the largest Catholic population in Scandinavia.
