The Holy Father visits CUA

During his historic visit to the United States, the Holy Father was greeted on campus by thousands of CUA students, faculty, staff and alumni on April 16 and 17. They gathered on campus to welcome Pope Benedict XVI on April 16 as the Pontiff arrived at the adjacent Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and then again on April 17 when he delivered a speech to 400 Catholic educators in the Edward J. Pryzbyla University Center.
