Pope Francis I is expected to arrive in the United States on Tuesday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream below!
After his first-ever trip to Cuba, the Pope departed Havana for a flight to Washington, D.C., marking his first visit to the U.S. He is expected to be greeted at Andrews Air Force Base by President Obama. Official activities are then set to begin on Wednesday.
The Pope will meet with President Obama at the White House on Wednesday morning, before a parade takes him to the Washington Mall. He will later have Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. The ceremony will be conducted in Spanish.
On Thursday, Pope Francis will be the first pope to ever address Congress in a joint session. The morning appearance will be done in English. At some point he will travel to New York City, as he is expected to address the United Nations on Friday morning. He will speak about environmental issues in front of the General Assembly.
The Pope will host Mass that night at Madison Square Garden, and then Saturday morning at Philadelphia’s Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. There will then be another parade, and on Saturday night, the Pope will attend the World Meeting of Families.
Yet another parade will be held on Sunday, before another Mass. After that, the Pope will fly back to Rome. A number of the events will be live streamed, and Gossip Cop will have coverage when available. Watch below.
