ROME - Several members of the St. Anne Catholic Church Choir of Houston shared the story of their pilgrimage with KHOU 11 News Anchor Ron Trevino on Saturday.

Choir director James Ross, soprano Sarah May and organist Matthew McCue are among the 42 members of the choir who made the trip. They raised $70,000 to get here, but actually, they have been here before.

The choir visited just after the death of Pope John Paul II. Not too many choirs can say that, and they return to St. Peter’s Basilica on Sunday to sing during a Mass. They toured the area Saturday morning.

The choir will leave Rome on Wednesday; one day after the papal conclave begins.
