On Tuesday, Pope Francis left Cuba and flew to Washington, DC. 

Symbolically, as the pope's plane flew over Georgia, the Immaculate Heart of Mary School family will gathered on the back field and welcome him to the United States with signs, song and prayers.

Outside the terminal at At Andrews Air Force Base, many in the crowd cheered a jubilant, "Ho, Ho, Hey, Hey, Welcome to the USA."
