CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Members of a local Catholic youth group took off to Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday. They will be attending World Youth Day, a four-day gathering featuring Pope Francis.

More than two million young people from around the world will be attending the event. Probably the most anticipated part of the four days is a huge vigil and mass just outside Rio. It will conclude the four-day mission.
