Indiana Students Head to Rome for Canonization

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Some teenagers are traveling to Rome for the ceremony during which the namesake of their Indianapolis school will be declared a saint.
       Lucas LaRosa and Abby Whalen are among four Roncalli High School students making the trip for Sunday's canonization of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII.
       LaRosa tells WTHR-TV he expects the ceremony will be a time he'll remember for the rest of his life. Whalen says her group is planning to head toward Vatican City about 2 a.m. to get a spot for the events.
       Their 1,100-student Catholic school is named after Cardinal Angelo Roncalli, who became John XXIII when he became pope in 1958 until his death in 1963.
