Action News in Rome: Mayor Nutter gets advice on handling Papal crowd — Mayor Michael Nutter met with the mayor of Rome to discuss how to handle the Papal crowds expected in September. Thursday is the final day of meetings for the delegation from Philadelphia responsible for planning the World Meeting of Families and the Pope's visit in just ninety four days.

Action News in Rome: Pope greets Philadelphia delegation in St. Peter's Square — It was a special moment Wednesday morning as Pope Francis greeted Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and a delegation of city and church officials in Rome. The meeting in St. Peter's Square happened as the pontiff continues to prepare for his upcoming trip to the City of Brotherly Love in September.

Action News in Rome: Andrea Boccelli, Juanez to perform during papal visit — We have known for several months now that the upcoming World Meeting of Families would be headlined by Pope Francis - a kind of international rock star. But today we got word of some of the actual rock stars that will join him during that week in September, and it quickly became clear that this is an international event.

Action News in Rome: Performers announced for papal visit to Philadelphia — Organizers of the World Meeting of Families have announced some of the high-profile musicians who will be performing during the pope's visit to Philadelphia in September. Renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli and Grammy-award-winning artist Juanes will perform for Pope Francis on Saturday, September 26th at the World Meeting of Families.

Action News in Rome: Local leaders visit Vatican as pope's visit to Philadelphia looms — It seems almost hard to believe, but Pope Francis' visit to Philadelphia is only 95 days away. For the city's faithful, and for those who are just eager to bear eyewitness to a figure who has already risen to icon status, that may seem like a long way off

Drone usage, popularity is on the rise — On Friday, we debuted Drone 6 live on-air during Action News at 4. Drone 6 can hover at much lower altitudes, to get close-up aerial footage that compliments Chopper 6 HD. It will allow us to literally give you a new perspective on stories during our newsgathering process.

Special Report: Uploaded photos creating facial recognition database — In a world where everyone has a camera, chances are pretty good you're on one most of the time. And the rest of the time, we're busy posting pictures of ourselves and our loved ones. What you may not realize is that your face in those photos has not only been recorded, but uploaded, analyzed, and digitized countless times.

Digital detectives share their online tricks — We post on social media every day and for some, multiple times a day. But what can a post, picture or even a comment reveal about someone and who is looking?

Wynnewood seminary hopes for another papal visit — There is a lot of excitement around the region for the Pope's visit later this year, but nowhere is that more palpable than in the place where he'll likely stay. At Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood, young men are studying day and night to determine if the priesthood is the path for them.

PREVIEW: Inside the seminary that could host the pope — The Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary on City Avenue could have a very special guest during the World Meeting of Families in September: Pope Francis. Tonight at 11, Action News anchor Brian Taff will get an inside look at the seminary where the pope could say during his trip to Philadelphia.
