|Mrs. Tina Rutland’s Montgomery Catholic first grade students watch from their class room as Pope Francis was introduced on Wednesday, March 13.|
Montgomery Catholic Preparatory students have been actively involved as the Church welcomes a new Pope. All of our classes K4 – 12 were able to stop and pray as Pope Benedict stepped down on February 28 and as the Conclave began on March 12. The excitement on Wednesday, March 13 as Pope Francis was announced as the 265th Successor of St. Peter was contagious! As history unfolded, MCPS students were praying and actively participating in a wonderful time in our history.
