The first part of Francis' day is spent with the clergymen who live in the building where he's staying; he'll reportedly speak with the oldest priest and youngest seminarian, then meet with 300 bishops.
Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility, 11 a.m.
Philadelphia's largest prison hosts the pope for about an hour. Francis is scheduled to helicopter into the 20-year-old facility, where he'll have two meetings: one with 100 young prisoners and their families, another with 30 corrections officers.
The chair Francis will sit in was constructed by inmates and staff at the prison, and his speech will be broadcast to all the roughly 3,000 inmates inside its walls.
Mass, World Meeting of Families, Benjamin Franklin Parkway, 4 p.m.
Up to 1.5 million people are expected to pack the boulevard between City Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art for Sunday Mass, the Spanish-language finale of the World Meeting of Families.
Francis will make one more appearance in the popemobile before the service begins. Mass is his last scheduled public event in the country.
