Tri-State Catholics prepare for Pope Francis

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

There will be a very special blessing happening at the St. Leo Catholic Charities Food Pantry Friday morning.
 
Archbishop Dennis Schnurr will bless more than 7,000 letters written by local residents of all faiths.
 
The notes will be delivered to Congress during Pope Francis’ visit to Washington D.C. next week.

This is Pope Francis’ first visit to the United States as leader of the Catholic Church.

The letters advocate for the continuation of school lunches and also WIC, the special supplemental nutrition program for women, infants, and children. 

Pope Francis has made a commitment to the poor, with a goal to end world-wide hunger by 2025.
