There is a strong rumor that Houston is in the lead for World Youth Day 2014. If this were to happen, it would be phenomenal for St. Mary's. We are only an hour or so up the road from Houston and I think the Pope should take a short helicopter ride up Hwy. 6 to visit us.
You never know, it could happen, because the whole purpose of WYD is to engage young adults and we are known to have one of the best, if not the best, campus ministries in the country.
Pray for God's will in this.
Rocco broke the story.
Also, there is already a Facebook group touting Houston for 2014.
