Wheeling Jesuit University has scheduled a series of events this month to mark Pope Frances' first visit to the United States.

The first event is scheduled Sept. 14 with an address by the parish social ministry coordinator for Catholic Charities of West Virginia. Kate Kosydar will discuss the papal encyclical and its impact on West Virginians.

On Sept. 21, the Nuns on the Bus tour will stop on its way to Washington, D.C. The Roman Catholic sisters promote Catholic social justice.

Wheeling Jesuit will also join 150 other colleges and parishes to participate in "Pope2Congress." The gatherings will watch as the pope addresses Congress.

The pope is scheduled to arrive on Sept. 22 in Washington.
