ROME, ITALY – Governor Tom Corbett and first lady Susan Corbett are among those in a delegation traveling to the Vatican this week.

Philadelphia is the first site of the Vatican’s Eighth World Meeting of Families, and the first U.S. city to be selected for the event. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Archbishop Charles Chaput are also in the delegation.

Pope Francis has been invited to visit the United States, and specifically Philadelphia. Officials are hoping the popular church leader says yes.
