St. Bonaventure’s College students will join with other students from 40 Jesuit schools throughout the United States, Canada & Puerto Rico in Philadelphia September 24-28. This gathering of Jesuit-educated men and women will be hosted by St. Joseph’s Preparatory School and Gesu School.

Students will gather together in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, to learn about,, and celebrate their shared Jesuit and Catholic identity during the historic visit of the Holy Father, Pope Francis. The visit will culminate with students attending the Papal Mass celebrated by Pope Francis at the Ben Franklin Parkway.

St. Bon’s will send six high school students and one teacher to this event.

“Because we are part of a global network of Jesuit schools and Pope Francis is a Jesuit, this trip will be a very unique and special experience for us to come together as a international community” said St. Bon’s President Tom McGrath.
