Visit to the Vatican Splendors Exhibit at Ronald Reagan Library

Our upper junior high classes had the opportunity to visit the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and experience the Vatican Splendors Exhibit before it journeys on to its next location. The exhibition had many works of art and other significant objects that have never left the Vatican. It illustrated the evolution of the Church and its papacy starting with Saint Peter all the way through the papacy of Pope Francis. Students also toured the Library exhibits and went aboard the same Air Force One that flew President Reagan over 600,000 miles.

In the words of Pope Francis, "Let us thank all those who teach in Catholic schools. Educating is an act of love; it is like giving life."
