The footage was recorded by journalist Joan Lewsi.

Originally uploaded to YouTube on April 30, the video is only now starting to spread across the internet.

The Associated Press reported some viewers had criticised the priests for dancing in front of a picture of Pope Francis and a crucifix.

To which Rider responded: “We would refer them to the Bible, where the Lord tells us to live with joy."
