HFA greets the Pope!


Brian McCrum ’10, at center right

This past Tuesday, HFA ’10 alumnus Brian McCrum, now serving in the US Coast Guard, was there to greet his holiness Pope Francis on the runway at Andrews Air Force Base. The pope’s Fiat is visible in the background.

At right and left are shots of the fearless pre-dawn crowd on the White House lawn, and the pope (four hours later) as a charismatic white dot. Besides the pope, Mr. Spence also spotted Bishop Robert Barron, George Weigel, George Stephanopoulos, and a former Chicago senator.

Miss Cintorino is currently in Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families; we hope for more great photos when she gets back!
