QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — Church officials say Pope Francis' trip to Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay is set for July 6-12.
Archbishop Luis Cabrera of Cuenca, Ecuador, says the pontiff arrives in Quito July 6, meets that day with President Rafael Correa and says Mass the next day in Quito's Bicentennial Park.
Cabrera says Francis will meet with priests and seminarians July 8 at the Quinche shrine near Quito.
The pope flies that afternoon to La Paz, where Roman Catholic officials say he will spend just six hours due to the altitude. He'll say Mass at the capital's sister city, El Alto.
The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, say Francis will spend two days in the eastern lowlands city of Santa Cruz.
Details of his July 10-12 Paraguay stay are not immediately available.
