UPDATED: Watch video from Rio, as CBS 11 speaks with Jason Deuterman via Skype:
Sixty-five young Catholics from the Diocese of Dallas are in Rio de Janeiro to celebrate World Youth Day with our Holy Father Pope Francis. The young adults from throughout the diocese made the trip.
Jason Deuterman, director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry at Holy Family of Nazareth Catholic Church in Irving sent the photo and is tweeting from Brazil. Follow him at @JasonDeuterman. The pilgrims ask all to pray for them as they experience this journey to deepen their faith.
