The Vatican confirms Pope Francis will make a stop at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum as part of his first trip to America later this year.
Memorial officials say his visit is set for September 25th, where he will pay respects to the nearly 3,000 people who died in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.
He will also lead a multi-religious meeting for peace inside the museum, and will gather with local representatives of different religions.
With the visit, Pope Francis will become the fourth Pope to visit the U.S. and the first one to visit the memorial and museum.
His predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI was at the World Trade Center site in 2008, before the memorial and museum opened.
