Pope Benedict XVI, current Holy Father, and Head of the illustrious Roman Catholic Church, has announced plans to visit Cameroon, in March 2009, and then go on to Angola, for the 500th anniversary of Angola's first evangelization.

He also announced plans for a summit in October, II Special Assembly for Africa, of the Synod of Bishops, to which African Bishops have been invited, to focus on justice, reconciliation, and on peace within the world's most poverty stricken continent. The synod will be hosted at Rome.
