Pope Francis will be making his first trip to the United States this week, with many exciting events on the agenda. His visit will include the canonization of Blessed Junipero Serra and an address at the joint meeting of Congress in Washington D.C., a procession through Central Park and an address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City, and participation in the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia.
Immaculate Heart Radio will provide coverage of Pope Francis’ visit with hourly updates from our correspondent Mary Graham. Mary will be in Washington, New York, and Philadelphia keeping listeners updated on the Holy Father’s activities and speeches.
