Pope John Paul II will visit Mongolia at the end of August. This was reported by Radio Vaticana who quoted the Apostolic Nuncio, Monsignor Giovanni Battista Morandini, who held a press conference this morning in the Mongolian capital city of Ulaanbaatar.
Mons. Renato Boccardo, the person in charge of planning the Pope's trips, is already working on the itinerary.
The Pope recently received an invitation to visit Mongolia from the President of the Mongolia, Natsagiin Bagabandi.

This announcement was made on EWTN very quickly the other morning and I had quite a time finding any news stories. The purpose of the pope's visit is to dedicate a new cathedral.
Please remember the Holy Father and the peoples of Mongolia in your prayers.
