Sen. Tim Kaine returned to St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Richmond, Virginia, on Sunday, a day after being introduced as Hillary Clinton’s running mate, according to NBC News.
Kaine and his wife, Virginia Secretary of Education Anne Holton, were swarmed by reporters, photographer and network cameras.
The church made a few nods to Kaine and his wife during Sunday mass. The congregation offered a prayer of petition, "especially we pray for Tim Kaine and Anne Holton" and the couple participated in the presentation of the gifts. Kaine also sang with the church’s choir, something he occasionally does.
The last time Kaine attended services at the church was two weeks ago.

The 18-year-old gunman behind the shooting at the Munich shopping mall on Friday spent at least a year planning the attack, and visited the site of a 2009 school massacre, NBC News reported.
The shooter, identified by local media as David S., also received two months of psychiatric treatment last year, according to a spokesman for the Munich prosecutor’s office.
Evidence found at the shooter’s home showed he was an avid player of first-person games. Investigators also found a manifesto and a digital camera that showed he visited the site of a high school massacre in Winnenden, southern Germany.
Officials say the shooter likely obtained his weapon, a 9mm pistol, illegally through the dark web. It was unclear where he purchased the ammunition.
The shooter killed nine people before shooting himself.

Recent polling shows millennials are less likely than those over 30 to support strict gun laws, NBC News reported.
A Gallup poll from October 2015 found that 50 percent of 18-29-year-olds support stricter gun laws compared to 57 percent of those 30-49. People aged 30 and 49 support tougher gun laws at a rate of 56 percent, versus 55 percent among those 65 and older.
This is in contrast to other social issues such as sex between unmarried people and LGBT issues, where younger people tend to skew far more liberal, according to Gallup Poll Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport.
"Millennials are ... less interested in gun control than those who are older, so the data suggests it's unlike a number of other attitudes say like, gay marriage where young people are much more liberal," he said. "We did not see that in our data on guns."

Michael Bloomberg is expected to endorse Hillary Clinton during his speech at the Democratic National Convention, an adviser for the former New York City mayor told NBC News.
Bloomberg is making the endorsement because of concerns about Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump. He also sees himself as a person with authority who can debunk Trump's claims about business and the economy, the former aide said.
Bloomberg has not been a member of the Democratic Party since 2000, according to The New York Times. He was elected the mayor of New York City as a Republican and later became an independent.
A Syrian man killed a woman with a machete and wounded two others outside a bus station in Germany Sunday before being arrested, NBC News reported.
The 21-year-old asylum seeker, who was known to police, was having an argument with the woman at the central Omnibus station in Reutlingen before attacking her at about 4:30 p.m. The suspect, whose name was not released, wounded another woman and a man as he fled, according to local police.

At least 18 homes have burned in a wildfire that exploded to nearly 35 square miles in dry hills and canyons, sending smoke and ash over a widespread part of Southern California and forcing a new round of mandatory evacuations.
Authorities said the burned body of a man was found Saturday inside a scorched car in a neighborhood swept by the Sand Fire flames near Santa Clarita, just north of Los Angeles. There was no evidence the death was crime-related, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Sunday as the investigation continued.

Rejecting calls by anti-doping officials for a complete ban on Russia, Olympic leaders on Sunday gave individual sports federations the task of deciding which athletes should be cleared to compete in next month's Rio de Janeiro Games.
Citing the need to protect the rights of individual athletes, the International Olympic Committee decided against taking the unprecedented step of excluding Russia's entire team over allegations of state-sponsored doping. Instead, the IOC left it to 27 international sports federations to make the call on a case-by-case basis.
"Every human being is entitled to individual justice," IOC President Thomas Bach said after the ruling of his 15-member executive board.

Tilda the pug terrier mix, Charizard the iguana, Rose the Huskie and more than 20,000 other animals found new homes on Saturday as NBC’s pet adoption drive emptied shelters across the country.
More than 45,000 pets in all were adopted this month as part of the second annual Clear the Shelters campaign, after more than 40 local NBC and Telemundo television stations teamed up with more than 680 animal shelters in states across the country and in Puerto Rico. The shelters offered no-cost or reduced-fee adoptions, or they waived spaying and neutering fees to help families bring home dogs, cats and unusual animals like the iguana.
Pet owners who mentioned the campaign during the adoption process were included in NBC's 2016 count, which was more than twice the number of animals given forever homes during last year's event.
"Our entire division of NECN, Telemundo and NBC stations and our corporate staff are overwhelmed and thrilled with the extraordinary results of this year's Clear The Shelters event,” said Valari Staab, the president of NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations. "We want to thank all of our shelters, NBC and Telemundo affiliates that joined us this year and our partners, including Petco and VIP Petcare. Together, we emptied at least 13 shelters and found more than 45,000 animals new loving homes."
Donald Trump pushed back against critics who called his speech at the Republican National Convention Thursday night too pessimistic, telling NBC's Chuck Todd he offered an optimistic message because "we're going to solve the problems."
In an interview on "Meet The Press," the GOP nominee said he intended to portray only a choice between himself and Hillary Clinton.
Asked about his statement that "I alone can fix it" — a sentiment blasted by critics as a flirtation with totalitarianism — Trump said his ability to solve America's problems is a binary contrast with the Democratic nominee.
"I am running against Hillary. It's not like I'm running against the rest of the world. I know people that are very, very capable that could do a very good job, but they could never get elected," he said.
Trump called critics of his address "haters," saying that the latest round of violence in the Middle East justifies the grim view of world affairs he presented in his speech.
