Pope Francis celebrated the Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper in a Rome juvenile detention facility and washed the feet of some of the young detainees.

It marked a change of the previously scheduled Holy Week event from St. Peter’s Basilica to Rome’s Casal del Marmo prison for minors.

While the practice of his predecessors has included washing the feet of priests or laypeople, the ceremony was normally held in either St. Peter’s Basilica or the Basilica of St. John Lateran.

As archbishop of Buenos Aires, Pope Francis used to celebrate the Mass of the Lord’s Supper -- which reflects on the call to imitate Christ by serving one another -- in prisons, hospitals or shelters for the poor and marginalized.
