Is your parish going to see the Pope in Mexico or Cuba?

February 28, 2012

HOUSTON — Pope Benedict XVI has announced a trip to Cuba and Mexico this spring. The Holy Father will visit the city of Leon in Guanajuato, Mexico, March 23 to 25. Many Catholic faithful are expected to travel from the U.S. for this historic apostolic visit, including many from our Archdiocese.
We would like to coordinate the best coverage possible for the Texas Catholic Herald and for our local media, who are already beginning to inquire about local Catholics’ travel plans for the papal visit to Mexico and Cuba. Could you let us know if a group from your parish is planning to visit Mexico to see the Pope? We’re interested in learning about any activities, organizing or fundraising that may be taking place in your parishes.
Please contact Monica Hatcher, Media Relations Specialist, at 713-652-8213 or with any information. †
