Pope Francis To Visit U.S. In September 2015

Catholic News Service today reports that Pope Francis has accepted an invitation to visit the United States to attend the 2015 World Meeting of Families.  The announcement was made by Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput.  The Meeting will be held in Philadelphia from Sept. 22-27, 2015. A Vatican spokesman said that the Pope is considering invitations to visit elsewhere in the U.S. as well as part of his trip, including possibly New York, the United Nations and Washington, DC. Official confirmation from the Vatican is not expected until six months before the planned trip.
