BRANFORD – Fifth graders at St. Mary School’s show off news stories they have written about Pope Francis’ first visit to the United States, which starts today.

Joanne Fresco assigned her fifth-grade religion class to “cover” one of the three locations that are hosting the pope – Washington, D.C.; New York and Philadelphia – and said she was overjoyed by the enthusiasm with which the students took on this project.

The students also created posters related to the visit that are displayed in the hallway to further educate the St. Mary’s community about the historic papal pilgrimage. (Photo submitted)
