On the same day Pope Benedict XVI gave his final Sunday blessing, Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Archbishop Chaput will hold an evening mass at Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul.
The mass, which begins at 6:30 p.m., will be held to celebrate the ministry of Pope Benedict XVI, the Philadelphia Archdiocese said.
Thousands attended the Pope's Sunday blessing at the Vatican. Local police estimated the crowd to be 10,000, the Associated Press reports.
On Thursday, Pope Benedict XVI will become the first pope to have resigned from the papacy in centuries.
Winter Weather Advisories take effect for our northwestern countines Sunday afternoon through early Monday morning. Snow will overspread the area from south to north Sunday afternoon.
The snow will bring light accumulations of 1-3" before mixing with sleet and rain by evening. Eventually the mix will become all rain.
Rain lingers into Monday morning washing away any accumulation. However, watch for icy roads Sunday night.
