LIVE: Pope Francis visits San Gelasio Church

Pope Francis visits the parish of San Gelasio, a peripheral church in northeast Rome. 

Before presiding over Mass at 6 p.m., the Holy Father will meet with Sunday school children and their families, the sick, the elderly, the needy and volunteers from Caritas. 

In addition, the pope will speak with two young people from Gambia whom the church has taken in. 

San Gelasio was established in 1972 and is home to priests from the Italian ecclesial institution Church-World Mission.
