Celebrating Mass with Pope Francis

by

On Friday, September 25, 2015, nearly 40 Mount Saint Mary College students joined 20,000 faithful at Pope Francis’s Madison Square Garden Mass in New York City. Pope Francis discussed the challenges of life in a large city and expressed concern for the Big Apple’s underprivileged citizens.
