Donato, of Rubery, and his children attended the beatification mass as members of the congregation of the Catholic Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Rednal, the closest church to the park. He tweeted throughout the day , snapped pictures of their experience on his mobile phone and made a short video of the Pope.
Donato says, “It was an amazing experience that will be with us all forever. You could hear the excitement and cheers from my children on the video.”
