The Pope is coming to the United States.
An outline of the Pope’s September visit to the United States would have him stop by the United Nations and celebrate Mass at Madison Square Garden during a three-city swing, according to a member of the organizing committee for the visit. Stops include New York City, Washington DC and Philadelphia.
This will be the first time Pope Francis will be visiting the United States. September’s visit to the United States, the first papal trek stateside since Pope Benedict XVI appeared in 2008, will likely begin the evening of Sept. 22 in Washington, D.C. Pope Francis would visit the White House the next morning and meet President Obama during an official welcoming ceremony. After his trip, he will go to New York City where he will address the United Nations. He will also go visit St.Patrick’s Cathedral before his mass at Madison Square Garden.
After his trip, he will visit Philadelphia.
