The Pope is set to arrive in Juarez on Wednesday, Feb. 17, and preparations have been underway for weeks to prepare for the big day.

Pope Francis is expected to arrive in Juarez around 10 a.m. MT, and then head to Ceresno State Prison to speak with inmates. A mass is scheduled to take place in the afternoon at the fairgrounds before Francis leaves to head back to the Vatican Wednesday night.
