Bishop Marcel and the McDonalds from our diocese our in Philadelphia to participate in this great event.
The McDonalds write: Just wanted to send you a "hello". Everything is really impressive here so far. Not a single wrinkle! We are fully checked into the hotel and convention. The official sessions begin tomorrow. Are you on Instagram? It's neat to follow the World Meeting account there. The whole city is hard at work cleaning and spit polishing for the Holy Father's visit. This is a beautiful city to begin with! God bless you and we'll be in touch!
