PHILADELPHIA — It will be hard to forget Pope Francis’ first trip to the U.S. — especially in Philadelphia.
Officials on Monday gave the public a peek at some of the souvenirs that will be available online starting in late June. More than 200 items will be offered, with prices starting at $5.
The pontiff plans to visit Philadelphia in September for the World Meeting of Families. It’s an international gathering for Catholics focused on strengthening family bonds.
Many of the keepsakes — like T-shirts, keychains and tote bags — will be branded with the World Meeting logo. But merchandise will also feature images of Francis and will include faith-based items like rosaries and holy medals.
The products will be distributed by Aramark, a food and facilities management company based in Philadelphia.
