From the District of San Francisco New Orleans
On February 17, 2016, a quarter of a million people converged on El Punto Fairgrounds in Ciudad Juárez on the U.S. – Mexico border to welcome Pope Francis on the final stop of his historic six-day visit to Mexico. Among them was a large and excited contingent of Lasallians from the Districts of México Norte, Midwest, and San Francisco New Orleans.
Cathedral High School in El Paso, Texas hosted over 140 of the Young Lasallians, educators, and Christian Brothers who made the trip for the Papal visit and Mass. Cathedral second-year Lasallian Volunteer Sheila Garcia was the primary host organizer, handling much of the onsite arrangements and logistics for the travelers’ three-day visit.
