Francis in Cuba

Jesuit parish in Havana hopes for unscheduled visit by Francis


Parishioners at one Jesuit-run parish in a more rough-and-tumble neighborhood here are hoping that Pope Francis might make an unscheduled stop-in Sunday on his way to visit with Cuban President Raul Castro.

Staff at Havana's parish of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and St. Ignatius of Loyola were mopping the floors of the expansive church in extraordinarily hot and humid weather Friday, just in case the pope does stop by.
