Area Catholic schools are using Pope Francis' visit to the United States this week as an opportunity to teach their students about him and his messages. Both Cathedral High School in St. Cloud and Saint Johns Prep have been showing students video clips of the Pope speaking during classes.
You can add St. John's Prep to the list of local schools giving ipads to all of their students. Principal Matthew Reichert says all 300 of their students in grades 6 through 12 received their ipads about a week before school started.
The St. John's Prep baseball team won 3-2 in game 1 of the section 5A championship Thursday but the Johnnies needed to beat Browerville twice. Browerville won game 2 8-3 to win the section title. St. John's Prep lost 2 key players to injury on the day that hurt their chances. Both Brian Walz and Alex Kendall were lost due to injury on the day.
