VATICAN CITY (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Cardinals in the catholic church will begin informal meetings as they try to find the successor for Pope Benedict the 16th.

He's the first pope to step down in nearly 600 years.

Following his final goodbye to the cardinals, Benedict flew to the papal palace outside Rome to begin his retirement.

While informal meetings among the cardinals begin Friday, they're scheduled to hold an official meeting on Monday to set the date for conclave to begin.

We will bring you that information as soon as it's announced.
