GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt has formally launched a website looking to convince Pope Francis to visit the area in 2015.

The website, popetogreenbay.com, encourages people to sign a petition asking the pope to visit the Green Bay area during a possible visit to the U.S. next year.

It specifically requests Pope Francis visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion.

In 2010, the Catholic Church validated an appearance by the Virgin Mary at the shrine back in the mid-1800s.
