Pope Francis will visit the United States for the first time to attend the World Meeting of Families, meet with President Obama, and address Congress among a packed six-day itinerary.
Here are some ways you can get involved during the Pope's visit:
During Francis' visit, we'll be collecting prayers in support of the Pope's speech to Congress. At the end of the week, we'll send your prayers to Congressional leadership to encourage them to act on the Pope's value-oriented policy prescriptions and stand up for working people.
There are satellite events happening across the nation to support the Pope's message of peace, dignity, and justice for all. Join a rally, a prayer vigil, a watch party, or roundtable discussion.
Finally, you can stay up to date on all the action by following the hashtags #PopeInUS and #PapaEnUSA on Twitter.
