CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Here at home, faithful gathered to pray for Pope Francis as he begins his new role as the head of the Catholic church.

"I'm so happy we have a pope from this side of the world," said Yolanda Guerrero. "All the popes were from the other side, so happy, pray for guidance for God to guide him."

A thanksgiving mass was held Tuesday evening at the Corpus Christi Cathedral.

It was a way for local Catholics to give thanks for the new leadership.  

Bishop Michael Mulvey led tonight's special mass.
