Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Pope Francis is coming to the United States.

According to a release from the Catholic News Service, Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput said Pope Francis has accepted his invitation to attend the World Meeting of Families in the U.S. next year, even though the Philadelphia Archdiocese still has not received official confirmation from the Vatican.

He has received invitations from other cities as well, but this is the first one the Pope has accepted.

The trip will be the first time Francis will visit the U.S. as pope.
