We have a new Pope!

The Roman Catholic Church is celebrating! We have a new Pope!

His name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio and he is from Argentina in Latin America. 

He is 76 years old and he chose to use the name Pope Francis.  Pope Francis is the 266th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church.

For the first time, it is the Pope who asked the people to bless him.

His leadership is expected to address the challenges that the Catholic Church is facing ahead: the dwindling number of churchgoers, homosexuality and gay marriages, leaks from the Vatican, ordination of women as priests, abortion, sexual abuses and more.

Let us all pray for him and our Church.
