Students for a Catholic high school in eastern Iowa have been chosen to perform in front of Pope Francis. The Dubuque Telegraph Herald says that the choir from Wahlert Catholic High School will sing at Sunday Mass with Pope Francis presiding.

Around 300 singers from the U.S. will sing, but Wahlert is the only high school from the U.S. chosen to perform. Along with the performance, students will also spend several days in Rome taking in the sites.

The Vatican is expecting more than 60,000 people to attend the mass on Sunday.
