A delegation from Christ the King Seminary in East Aurora departed Tuesday morning on a pilgrimage to Washington to see Pope Francis.
Led by the Rev. Joseph C. Gatto, seminary president-rector; the Rev. Robert Wozniak, rector of formation, and 35 seminarians and faculty members, the contingent will attend Mass to be celebrated Wednesday by the pope at Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
All seminarians and religious novices throughout the country were invited to attend the canonization Mass for Blessed Junipero Serra. Following the celebration, Pope Francis will speak to those who are responding to the call of priesthood and religious life.
