Vatican     POPE TO TRAVEL TO SYRIA EARLY NEXT YEAR
While the Holy Year will have officially ended, Pope John Paul II is scheduled to continue his jubilee pilgrimages by going to Damascus in Syria early in 2001.
    The trip, likely to take place at the end of February or early in March, also will include a stop in Malta -- part of a pilgrimage in the footsteps of St. Paul, a Vatican source said.
    A Vatican advance team is visiting Syria this week to work out a detailed itinerary and to deal with the hundreds of technical details associated with a papal trip.
