George and Amal Clooney exchanged smiles and handshakes with Pope Francis on Sunday during a visit to Vatican City.

The couple, who attended the pontiff’s Un Muro o Un Ponte Seminary at Paul VI Hall, were also on hand so that George could be awarded a medal for his work with Francis’ Scholas Occurrentes, an International Organization of Pontifical Right that connects technology with arts and sports, according to its website.

George 55, will serve as an ambassador for one of the foundation’s art projects, according to Reuters. Salma Hayek and Richard Gere were at the event and will also serve as ambassadors. The meeting consisted of testimonials, music, videos and a Q&A session, according to Vatican Radio.

Amal, 38, wore a chic, black lace Atelier Versace dress for the Vatican City trip, paired with a matching turban hat and Jimmy Choo shoes. Meanwhile, George looked dapper in a suit with a white shirt.
