Pope to attend November U.N. climate conference in Glasgow, health permitting

Pope Francis will attend the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow in November, health permitting, Scotland’s Roman Catholic bishops said on Monday.

The bishops confirmed the pope’s presence among other world leaders in a statement on their website.

“Having written to the Holy Father to assure him of a warm welcome, should he attend the conference, they are delighted to hear that he does hope to attend and would be glad to meet with them in Glasgow,” a statement said.
