Pope Francis will participate live from the Vatican in the event on the Google+ page of the group Scholas Ocurrentes.
This will be the second Google Hangout hosted by Pope Francis.
The pope has made efforts in recent years to reach out to children with special needs, embracing a boy with cerebral palsy during Easter mass at St. Peter’s Square in 2013 and bringing together individuals affected by autism for an international conference on the developmental disorder last year.
