In what has become an Indiana tradition, our seniors traveled to Ss. Peter & Paul Cathedral today for a special mass with celebrant His Eminence, Joseph Cardinal Tobin, C.SS. R. After nearly four years as leader of the Indianapolis archdiocese, Tobin was named cardinal by Pope Frances. In what was one of his final local homilies before his move, Cardinal Tobin told the seniors that in many ways, he knows what it is like to look toward graduation and moving onto the next chapter of their lives. He will take up residence in New Jersey in January to lead the Newark archdiocese. "The word of God will illuminate your path," said Tobin. He encouraged students to continue to seek ways to serve others just as Jesus did. Tobin, who was born in Detroit was ordained in 1978. Following the mass, he shook hands with students and congratulated them on their accomplishments.

At Providence Cristo Rey, we are fortunate to have on staff the talent of Olrando Pelaez, an international artist specializing in Latin American Art as well as a graphic and visual design.
