HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Pa. Governor Tom Corbett and other top Philadelphia politicians headed to Rome on Sunday. They're hoping Pope Francis says he will attend a huge Catholic gathering in Pennsylvania next year.

They will be in Rome until Thursday working with Vatican officials on the World Meeting of Families, which is scheduled for September 2015 in Philadelphia.

The event could attract more than 1 million people, making it the largest gathering in city history.
