In addition to Philadelphia, Pope Francis told reporters Monday that he will also visit New York and Washington on his upcoming trip to the United States.

In September, he is scheduled to attend the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia.

The trip will be the popular pontiff’s first to the United States as Pope.

Speaking on his flight back to Rome from the Philippines, he did not provide a detailed itinerary for the U.S. trip but said he planned to visit the United Nations and go to the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington.
