RIO DE JANEIRO (July 26, 2013) - On this seventh day of the World Youth Day pilgrimage, the Archdiocese of Boston pilgrims in Rio attended their last English-language catechesis, this one led by Cardinal Seán O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston, followed by Mass celebrated by the Cardinal.
Later in the day the pilgrims were to participate in the Stations of the Cross with Pope Francis on Copacabana beach.
More than 160 pilgrims from the Archdiocese of Boston are traveling to World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, between July 20 and 29, 2013, along with millions of youth from around the world, Pope Francis, and their own Cardinal Seán P. O'Malley, OFM Cap, Archbishop of Boston.
George Martell of Pilot New Media is traveling with the pilgrims to send back photos, YouTube videos, social media updates, and even real-time streaming video so that those who can't attend in person may be virtual pilgrims. Follow the pilgrimage at www.wydrioboston.com.
