Vatican City, Jan 18, 2020 / 16:35 pm
Young adults from the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis are accompanying their bishops on their ad limina visit to Rome this week, joining them at "the threshold of the apostles."
The 25 young Catholics are in Rome Jan. 10-18, visiting the city as Archbishop Bernard Hebda and Auxiliary Bishop Andrew Cozzens make their "ad limina apostolorum" visit to the pope and Vatican with the other bishops of Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
"It's really been incredible, it's been fun to pray for [the bishops] as they meet with the Holy Father, to hear about their experiences," Maddie Schulte, 23, told CNA.
On Jan. 15, the young adults - ranging in age from 21 to 34 - had their own opportunity to greet Pope Francis after his weekly general audience.
