VATICAN CITY_Pope Francis celebrated his first mass in Vatican City Sunday morning. 

Before the mass he greeted crowds who cheered as he made his way through Saint Peter's Square.

The mass took place before a packed crowd at Sant'anna Parish. 

He will also deliver the Angelus Prayer from his apartment window, where he'll bless the crowd in Saint Peter's Square. 

The official mass to inaugurate Francis as the Bishop of Rome, and leader of the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, will take place Tuesday.
