Catholic U's Independent Student Newspaper starts a Papal Blog

THE POPE AT CUA - The staff of Catholic University of America's The Tower newspaper have launched a blog of their own to cover the papal visit and the Pope's appearance on campus:

The Tower Newspaper is the Independent Student Newspaper at The Catholic University of America. The staff at the paper thought it to be a good idea to have a place where all of the articles on the pope’s visit to Catholic University could be easily accessed. This blog isn’t just a collection of articles though, it’s a guide that CUA students and others can use to help learn more about the Pope’s visit and what life will be like when he’s around.

During his visit this blog will be constantly updated by our staff. The Tower has obtained media credentials to capture photographs of Pope Benedict’s arrival at Andrews Air Force Base, his speech at the Pryzbyla Center, and the mass at National’s stadium. In addition, Tower reporters and photographers will be attending the ceremony at the White House and be mixed into the crowd on the Pryzbyla Center lawn to capture student reaction to this once in a lifetime opportunity. Tower staff will also be at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast on April 18.
