Church officials continue to work on the agenda of Pope Francis' planned visit to the United States in September, The New York Times reported.

The schedule for the Sept. 22-27 papal visit calls for stops in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and one very busy day in New York City, the Times said.

The pope will address the United Nations General Assembly summit on sustainable development, and will likely visit the landmark St. Patrick's Cathedral on Fifth Avenue, as well as celebrate a public Mass, possibly at Madison Square Garden.

A visit to ground zero is also possible, according to Vatican U.N. representative Archbishop Bernardito Auza, who is taking part in organizing the journey, the Times reported.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, blogged that he had assured the pontiff of a warm welcome.

Congressional leaders have invited Pope Francis to address the Congress. The U.S. visit is built around the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, according to the Catholic News Agency.

The precise itinerary of the pope's U.S. visit will be announced around March 1, Cardinal Dolan wrote.
