(PHILADELPHIA) — Pope Francis landed in Philadelphia Saturday for the final leg of his trip to the United States.

Francis begins his trip to the City of Brotherly Love by celebrating Mass at Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. He later goes to Independence Mall, where he’ll be addressing immigrants.

The pontiff ends his Saturday at the World Meeting of Families Festival.

Francis also spends Sunday in Philadelphia before leaving for the Vatican. Earlier this week, the pope made a historic address to Congress, spoke to the United Nations General Assembly, and celebrated Mass at Madison Square Garden.
