St. John's Jesuit High School & Academy held an all-school liturgy to celebrate the installation of Pope Francis, the 266th Roman Catholic Pope. Father Joaquin Martinez delivered the sermon. "Well I hope that Pope Francis inspires the young people, gets them more active and involved in the church and in service," Father Martinez said.
The installation of Argentine Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the new Pontiff is an historic event as he is the first Jesuit pope in the church's history. Senior Sam Weinandy is excited about the new pope. "Even with his name Francis, so he is going to reach out to the poor and to the people in South America," Mr. Weinandy said.
