Pope Francis encouraged everyone to be saints last night at the vigil. Parramatta Pilgrims joined millions of others on Copacabana beach for the Saturday Night Vigil and Sunday Mass.

Before the vigil, there was an entertainment program with Catholic acts to help pass the time for those who had been waiting the entire day.

After the Mass today the Parramatta group will be either catching a bus to Sao Paulo or leaving directly from Rio. The entire group will travel from Santiago to Sydney together.
