Pope to Visit US

WASHINGTON DC (KAIT) - Pope Benedict XVI is expected to visit the United States this month.

The Pope will tour the US from April 15-20th. He will stop at the White House for his 81st birthday.

The Catholic faith in America is slowly declining with many of its members not regulary attending mass. Most of the Catholic people in the US are now primarily hispanic.

The Pope hopes that his trip to America will open the eyes of his Catholic people paving the way for higher mass attendance and faith in the church.

A ceremony will be performed with the Pope's arrival to celebrate his trip to the United States.
