PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Hundreds of thousands of Catholics are preparing to fill St. Peter’s Square Tuesday for Pope Francis’ installation.

Here in Pittsburgh, Bishop David Zubik has declared a “free day” for Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Pittsburgh.

Students will have the day off to watch the Holy Father’s inaugural public Mass in Rome, Italy.

Zubik will also hold a special mass of celebration at 7 p.m. Tuesday at St. Paul Cathedral.

In Rome, Pope Francis will make his way through the crowd beginning at 9 a.m.

Vice President Joe Biden, who is America’s first Catholic Vice President, will lead the U.S. Delegation at the Pope’s inaugural mass.
