Welcome Pope Francis – CTN Papal Project

s043474810_3001__86535.1426182504.1280.1280CTN’s Papal Project is to honor Pope Francis’ visit to the USA for the World Meeting of Families.  This project hopes to promote this historic event as a teachable moment for all students, and encourages Pope Francis’ presence in your school throughout this school year with this special blessed Pope Francis doll.

In commemorating the Pope Francis’ visit, CTN will be creating a “photo gallery” of school pictures taken with the Pope Francis doll.  This is a fun way to show the children how they are living examples of our Catholic Faith!   These photos will on posted on this website as well as our Facebook page.

Here’s how to participate in this special CTN Papal Project:

  • Each school in the Diocese has received a blessed Pope Francis doll.  We ask that each school participate in this project by taking photos of families with the Pope Francis doll that represent your school community.  Please submit the photos via email to:  ctn@desalesmedia.org.   All emails MUST have the school name and class (or identifying group) on the SUBJECT LINE. 
  • The Photo gallery will be displayed on this site  **Please make sure that all children photographed have a signed photo release for the present school year.  The project begins on September 22, 2015 and ends at 3 PM on October 21, 2015.
  • All participating schools will be entered into a special raffle on October 22, 2015.  The winning school will receive a mystery “Papal” memorabilia box filled with special keepsakes of his visit that can be turned into an in-school raffle or serve as awards for various achievements.
