Ten students from Mary Sample’s History of the Catholic Church class at Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School in Dumfries visited diocesan offices Jan. 17.

The seniors toured the offices of Catholic Schools, Multicultural Ministries, Child Protection, Facilities and Construction and Communications. They had the opportunity to share lunch with Bishop Michael F. Burbidge. After lunch, they visited the Vocations Office.

Students enjoyed the experience. Senior Justin Daigle found it interesting. “I specifically loved the architecture portion (in the Office of Facilities and Construction),” he said.

“I didn’t know about the chancery or think about it until our professor brought it up,” said Ryan Nicol. “It’s been very interesting, and I learned a lot.”

Sample said she wanted her students to see “that we are living church history now and that it is alive and well, so they have better vision of what the church is doing while living the faith today. I hope they have a better appreciation for their faith and for all the efforts of the church to evangelize and spread the Gospel.”
