Front Row!

September 25, 2015


My wife, Carol, and daughter, Laura, took six lucky Bishop Chatard students to Washington D.C. for the opportunity to be a part of Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S. They were at the gates when they opened at 5:00 a.m. on Wednesday, earning a front row spot for the parade.

They are pictured above wearing the “BCHS loves Pope Francis” t-shirts Carol made.

They were also mentioned in a Washington Post article (with my wife quoting Scripture!):

Six girls from Bishop Chatard High School in Indianapolis found a prime spot on Constitution aligned with the Washington Monument. They left Indiana after school Tuesday, in a Suburban driven by their director of campus ministry, and arrived in the District at 3:10 a.m. They all wore hot-pink long-sleeved shirts with “Witness is what counts” inked on the backs.
“The daily reading today is Luke, Chapter 9, Verse 1 through 6,” said Carol Wagner, the campus ministry director. “It’s fitting: ‘Take nothing for the journey.’ ” They’d left their sleeping bags and most of their snacks in the car, obedient to security restrictions.
