Pope Planning US Visit Next Year

Pope Francis is coming to the US. The Pope has accepted an invitation to attend the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia next year.
The celebration is being held September 22 to the 27th, 2015. It marks the pontiff’s first planned visit to the United States as Pope.
Francis is reportedly also considering invitations he has received to visit other places in the United States too, including New York, the United Nations and Washington.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia says official confirmation from the Vatican for the trip will likely be given about six months before the World Meeting of Families.
