POPE BENEDICT XVI TO VISIT IN APRIL His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, will visit
the Archdiocese of New York from April 18-20, 2008 as part of a pastoral journey
to the United States. The Holy Father will arrive in New York following a visit
to Washington, D.C. from April 15-April 17. On April 18, the Holy Father will
address the United Nations, and participate in an Ecumenical Service at a New
York parish. A morning Mass with priests, deacons, and members of religious
orders will be held on Saturday, April 19, in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral,
followed by a visit to Saint Joseph’s Seminary in Yonkers where the Pope will
participate in an event with youth and young people. Pope Benedict will spend
his last day in New York by visiting Ground Zero, and by celebrating a Mass in
Yankee Stadium. He will return to Rome in the evening of April 20.
I think Yonkers is a funny word.
