Steady rains force chance in location for closing WYD Mass
July 25, 2013
World Youth Day organizers have announced a last-minute change in the venue for the closing Mass that will be celebrated by Pope Francis.
The Sunday Mass had been scheduled at a park 30 miles west of Rio de Janeiro. Because of soaking rains that have made the area nearly impassable, the Mass will be celebrated at Copacabana beach.
