Papal Visit to the United States September 22-27, 2015

From the website of the Diocese of Cleveland...

On September 22nd through September 27th, Pope Francis will visit the United States.  His apostolic journey will begin in Washington D.C. on September 22nd. While in our nation’s capital, he will be welcomed at the White House, address a joint session of Congress and Canonize Blessed Junipero Serra.  On September 24th, the Holy Father will travel to New York City where he will address the General Assembly of the United Nations on September 25th.  The final city of the Pope’s journey takes him to Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families.

The historic visit of Pope Francis is a moment of evangelization for the Catholic Church.  It is an opportunity for all Catholics in the Diocese of Cleveland to continue living our faith in Jesus Christ. Bishop Lennon is encouraging everyone to follow this historic visit of Pope Francis; to read the news, listen to the radio and watch television and internet coverage of the event and listen closely to what Pope Francis is saying to us as the universal church.  The hope is that we may grow in understanding and wisdom about what our faith is about, both personally and as a universal church.
