Manhattan College Bears Witness to the Pope’s 2015 Apostolic Journey

New York City has a way of dwarfing historic moments in the contiguous and contagious movement of its 8 million-plus inhabitants. But from Sept. 24-25, even the Big Apple couldn’t overshadow the arrival of Pope Francis, as thousands stopped their daily activities to hear a word from or catch a glimpse of His Holiness. From faculty and administrators to students and alumni, the Manhattan College network was there to bear witness: in person, on campus and around the world.
