Chilean Miners Attend Mass at San Jose Mine

Ad Feedback

Several of the rescued Chilean miners returned to the rescue site of San Jose in the Atacama desert on Sunday. They came together to celebrate a Catholic mass in thanks for their rescue.

The mass was held at the site where family members held prayer vigils and services during the 70 days the men were trapped underground.

Most men have returned to their homes and are adjusting to life above ground.

For the time being, money is no concern since each miner has a bank account with about $12,000 in donations.

The men are receiving offers to tell their story of the ordeal but made a pact to remain tight-lipped while negotiating movie and book rights.

Meanwhile, the government has promised to monitor the miners' mental and physical health for at leas the next six months.
