Cardinal Gregory celebrates Lenten Mass for Gonzaga students
The pews at St. Aloysius Catholic Church were filled as Cardinal Wilton Gregory offered a Lenten Mass with students at Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C. on March 16.
Gonzaga is an all-boys preparatory high school with a student body of just under 1,000 students. It was originally established as the Washington Seminary in 1821 by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits).
Cardinal Gregory celebrated the Mass along with Jesuit Father Joseph Lingan, president of the school who also graduated from there in 1975.
During his homily, the cardinal referenced the reading from the Gospel of Luke, in which Jesus drove out an evil spirit.
