Pope Francis made a getaway to the parish of St Bernadette Soubirous in the eastern outskirts of the city.

There were 80 young people waiting to listen and welcome him there, with singing and clapping their hands.

Every month, the pope plans to visit a parish in his diocese as a way of fulfilling his pastoral duties and bringing together the local Catholic church.

He spoke with the group about various topics including his own vocation and the need to allow oneself to be helped in difficult moments.

Pope Francis left the parish greeting the sick and giving candy to the children.
