HARLEM - When Pope Francis visits New York later this month, one of his stops will be the Our Lady Queen of Angels school, which is affiliated with Catholic Charities.

A group of kids will be meeting the pope and getting a blessing from him when he visits the school.  They represent local immigrants, refugees and first-generation Americans.

Those who will be meeting the pontiff on Sept. 25 say the experience is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity they will never forget.
