Pope Will Meet Refugees in NYC

When Pope Francis visits New York, he will meet 150 immigrants and refugees at Our Lady Queen of Angels School in East Harlem on Sept. 25. They hail from Central and South America, Africa and Asia and all benefit from Catholic Charities programs.

Msgr. Kevin Sullivan, director of Archdiocesan Catholic Charities, said East Harlem is the pope’s most important stop and is the perfect place to see the embodiment of his often-articulated message that the Church is for the poor.
