WNYers celebrate Pope's last day in the U.S.

Posted at 6:14 AM, Sep 28, 2015

Many Western New Yorkers spent the day in Philadelphia just trying to get close enough to grab a glimpse of Pope Francis.

People all over the world, traveling in the midst of massive crowds to see Pope Francis.

Among the crowds was 9-year-old Amelia Jakubczak from East Aurora. Amelia traveled with a group of more than 100 Western New Yorkers. She brought things from her class at Immaculate Conception School to be blessed.

It was also quite a journey for students from Canisius College. The group walked over 5 miles before standing in a security line for more than three hours, and still didn't get in. The group was still happy to watch on a nearby jumbotron.

The Pope celebrated his last day in the U.S. Sunday.
