WASHINGTON, D.C., DEC. 4, 2007 (Zenit.org).- The Catholic University of America has launched a Web site dedicated to Benedict XVI's visit to the school in April.

The Pope will be visiting the university Thursday, April 17, as part of his apostolic visit to the United States.

"Even though we're five months away from welcoming the Holy Father to Catholic University, excitement about his upcoming visit is running very high," said university president Father David O'Connell.

"In recognition of this excitement and to satisfy the desire for as much information and transparency as possible, we have created this special Catholic University of America Web site," said the Vincentian priest. "This is our 'first draft.' We will have much more to add as time goes on."

The university's Web site provides information about Benedict XVI's scheduled meeting at the university with the presidents of Catholic colleges and universities and diocesan educational leaders, as well as general information about the historic visit.
