Just a few moments ago the Vatican released the comprehensive itinerary for Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to the United States including his visit to Philadelphia September 26-27. I’m overjoyed to share in the excitement of this news with you. We here in and around the “City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection” are waiting with open hearts to welcome the world to this wonderful city. I ask you as I have many times before to join me in praying for all those that are fervently working on the preparations for the World Meeting of Families 2015 and the Holy Father’s visit to the United States. I’m sharing a link to the schedule via the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops with you here.
May the Lord give you every grace and blessing.
