"The World Meeting of Families" will be held in Philadelphia from September 23-27, 2015. Although it is not confirmed that Pope Francis will visit Philadelphia, the meeting has seen visits from The Pope in the past, as has our city!

A spokesman, Ken Gavin, for The Archdiocese stated

"The World Meeting of Families has traditionally been attended by the Holy Father. We are planning as if Pope Francis will be with us and have every hope that he will be with us."

"The Archdiocese looks forward to staging this international event and showcasing our great City of Brotherly Love. It is a gift not only for Catholics but everyone in the Philadelphia region."

The event is expected to bring in people from all over the Globe, and The Pope might be one of them.
