HAVANA – The Vatican's foreign minister is coming to Cuba next month to lead discussions on the island's economic challenges and the effects of emigration and the families torn apart by it.

Roman Catholic Archbishop Dominique Mamberti will mark Catholic Social Week June 12-20 by leading discussions among church leaders from around the island, as well as elders from other religions, said Orlando Marquez, spokesman for Havana's Conference of Bishops.

Topics debated will include "the necessity for dialogue and reconciliation among Cubans," specifically the divide between islanders and those who left for the United States and now form part of the Cuban-American exile community.

Also on the agenda are "the challenges the nation's economy faces" and "the complexities of today's Cuban society," according to a statement from the Havana Archbishop's Office.
