Pope to Visit OLQA in Fall

July 24, 2015

On September 25th, OLQA will be welcoming a special visitor. Pope Francis has chosen Our Lady Queen of Angels as the one school he will be visiting during his historic US tour. We are overjoyed and humbled to be singled out during his brief visit. Orchestrated by the Vatican, His Holiness will visit OLQA to meet some of our students and teachers, and to learn about the work that Catholic education and organizations such as Catholic Charities are doing on behalf of the families in our East Harlem neighborhood. As Principal Joanne Walsh says, “It is an honor and a blessing. The blessing of his presence in our school will have a lasting effect.” Now we have another wonderful reason to look forward to the start of the school year in September!
