GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

More than 60 faculty and staffers at Saint Ignatius School departed Friday for Philadelphia to celebrate mass with the Pope on Sunday. 

It's a historic event for the school. Students have been learning about Pope Francis, making Flat Francis', writing down prayer intentions, and praying with classmates and families. 

They also celebrated with a "Popecicle" celebration on Thursday during recess, a surprise for the over one thousand students that attend the school.
