Reliving WYD 1993 | Aug. 13: Bishops’ Mass, Way of the Cross and Camp St. Malo

The Holy Father spent his “day off” on Aug. 13, 1993, celebrating a Mass with Bishops and Cardinals from around the U.S. at Denver’s own Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception; after all, it’s not every day that the Pope is in our own backyard! Look closely at the photos and you might recognize the familiar face of our very own Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila, who was a priest in Denver at the time! The pope also paid a visit to the beautiful Camp St. Malo, where he reveled in the splendor of the Rocky Mountains. Also on that day, the Holy Father would lead a powerful Way of the Cross procession around Mile High Stadium.
