Holy Trinity Catholic School students, parents and staff made the journey to see Pope Francis in Philadelphia.

Here’s a few photos from their trip with the 7th and 8th grade students to Philadelphia, Sept. 25-27, to be with the Holy Father at the World Meeting of Families.  Principal Pam Simon said, “We were able to take 25 students, 12 parents and 6 faculty members.  The students were about 15 feet from Pope Francis when he came down the Ben Franklin Parkway on Saturday evening.  It was quite an experience for all of us to share with a million other Catholic pilgrims.”
