A special exhibition on the history of the Korean Catholic Church will be held at the Vatican next year.

Seoul Archdiocese announced on June 10 that the exhibition, titled 230 Years of Catholic Church in Korea, would go on display at the Vatican for three months starting September 2017.

Plans to hold the exhibition this year were shelved after Pope Francis announced the Jubilee of Mercy.

The exhibition is the first to feature 230 relics of the Korean Catholic Church and will be held in the Wings of Charlemagne in the Vatican Museum.
