On April 16, the pope’s 86th birthday, the students sang “Happy Birthday,” enjoyed a birthday treat and offered their prayers for the Holy Father. At an all-school Mass that day, the student body, staff and parents in attendance said a special prayer for the pope.

“Our support for the Holy Father is unconditional, and so we pray for him as a school community during Mass and participate in these activities as a witness of this support. It’s our way of standing by him in the midst of the storm,” commented Tony Ferraro, Royalmont Academy’s executive director and principal.

The school also held a special assembly on April 19 to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Benedict XVI’s election as pope.
