Pope Francis later celebrates Mass on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to conclude the World Meeting of Families Festival, which he attended Saturday, before flying back to Rome.

Francis arrived in Philadelphia on Saturday. He celebrated Mass at Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, addressed a group of immigrants at Independence Mall, and later attended the World Meeting of Families Festival.
