Pope Francis Visit To U.S. Begins Today-- How To Follow The Events

The White House has posted a page on its website captioned Pope Francis Is Coming To Washington.  It sets out the Pope's schedule for his visits to D.C., New York and Philadelphia, and other basic information about the visit.  It also provides a form to sign up for e-mail alerts during the Pope's visit.  He arrives from Cuba at Andrews Air Force Base today at 4:00 p.m.  Coverage of the visit will be streamed live online by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops here.  EWTN is also providing live streaming of both the Cuba and U.S. portions of the visit. Of course, the Vatican News Portal also has extensive coverage.  A private Catholic evangelization website, Pope Francis Visit 2015, has extensive background material and coverage as well.  It even offers extensive Pope Francis merchandise and memorabilia for sale.
