Fordham World Youth Day Update

Fordham's contingent hoists the Vatican flag in
front of Cathedral Basilica of Salvador,
 a historic
Jesuit church in Salvador de Bahia.
Fordham's delegation of 14 students and two campus ministers checked in with us from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where they are participating in World Youth Day 2013.

Philip J. Florio, S.J., assistant vice president for Campus Ministry, sent this update from Sunday, July 13, where the group attended an open air mass presided by Father General Adolfo Nicolás, S.J., superior general of the Society of Jesus.

"The Fordham delegation could not get close enough to Father General to get a group picture after mass, but it's only day three of the trip, they have time yet and they were given the mission!"
