Third Papal Visit Highlights a Special Relationship

Pope Francis came to the campus of The Catholic University of America on Sept. 23, 2015. The Pope’s visit, which marked the third time a Pope has come here, highlights the special role Catholic University plays as the national university of the Catholic Church in the United States, founded by the nation’s bishops and chartered by the Holy See to confer ecclesiastical degrees.

Students at Catholic University had unique opportunities to participate in preparing for the papal visit and welcoming Pope Francis when he arrived on campus.
