Hope still alive for pope to visit Green Bay

Details on Pope Francis' plan to visit the United States next year are renewing hope of enticing him to put Green Bay on his itinerary.

"Anything is possible," said Christina Pallini, spokeswoman for the Pope to Green Bay Ad Hoc Committee.

Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt established the committee earlier this year after extending an invitation to the pope to come to Green Bay during an expected 2015 visit to the United States.

An online petition drive supporting the mayor's invitation has drawn more than 4,000 signatures.

The pontiff confirmed Monday that he would make his first visit to the United States in September to attend an event in Philadelphia and possibly to visit New York and Washington, D.C.
