Archbishop Thompson Pays Providence Cristo Rey a Visit

This week, our school was honored to welcome Archbishop Thompson to PCR. The Archbishop made the stop at PCR as he works his way to all of the Catholic high schools in the archdiocese.

During his two hours at PCR, Archbishop Thompson spent time visiting classrooms, and chatting with students around the school. A handful of our students had the privilege of spending some extra time with Archbishop Thompson. Students told Archbishop Thompson what it meant for them to attend a Catholic school and how they are living their faith out in their own lives. Reporter Natalie Hoefer from the Criterion also joined in the visit to take pictures and interview the students about their experience.

"I think it is really important for our students to interact with the leader of our Archdiocese and be able to share their experiences of faith with him," said Campus Minister Facundo Gonzalez Icardi. "Not only this, but they were also able to hear about Archbishop Thompson's own journey of faith. Something that I think resonated with a few of our students was when he shared that he used to study business in college, but he ended up entering the seminary: 'You never know where God is calling you!"
