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.
