Toledo gathering welcomes Francis

As Pope Francis arrived in the United States, a multifaith group gathered Tuesday in Toledo to welcome the head of the Roman Catholic Church and call attention to the issues they share with him, particularly concern for the poor.

The event at Monroe Street United Methodist Church was sponsored by the Toledo Area Jobs with Justice and Interfaith Worker Justice Coalition.

The gathering was a response to a call by the organization In This Together, which was encouraging “welcome Pope Francis meetings” in homes.
