Region Catholics Celebrate Papal Inauguration

About 190-thousand Catholics in the region are celebrating the inauguration of Pope Francis the First this morning. Bishop Dale Melczek, of the Gary Diocese, says Pope Francis's style reflects that he is a “Pope of the People” and what type of impact that could have on Papal traditions.  Hundreds of thousands are expected for the unique international gathering. The faithful began arriving early around 6:30 this morning when the gates opened.
