Priests and deacons distribute the Eucharist to the over one million faithful who attended the Mass! Jesus is present in the Blessed Sacrament under each umbrella. Cool, huh?

Mrs. Pohlen was blessed to be able to receive the Eucharist at a Papal Mass! You know what else is cool? She prayed for each of you, our families, students, alumni, parishioners, and supporters! God is good!

Carl and Mrs. Pohlen are tuckered out from their adventure to see the Pope. They prayed for everyone at CKS and can’t wait to get home. God bless!
