Join NWCN on Thursday for full coverage of Pope Benedict's farewell.

Starting at 7:30 a.m., you can view the Papal Departure from Vatican City. To help explain the process, NWCN will host special guests Dr. Tom Curran and from our Washington D.C. bureau, Dave Cassidy.

"Dr. Curran earned a graduate degree from the Gregorian University in Rome, and obtained a Ph.D. in systematic theology from Catholic University. He has delivered more than 1,000 presentations to over 200,000 Catholics in thirty states and six countries, with topics ranging from how to be a magnificent family to encountering the Holy Spirit to answering the difficult questions Catholics are frequently asked about their faith." 

Stay tuned to NWCN at 2 p.m. with more on Pope Benedict's farewell. The President of Seattle University, Father Stephen Sundborg, will be on NWCN to discuss the next steps in the election process and the complexities that may emerge.
