#DrivewithFrancis: Pope’s Fiat donated to Archdiocese and Catholic Charities

Best Blogger Tips
During his time in Washington, DC, Pope Francis used two Fiat 500Ls to shuttle around to his meetings, including that time he visited Catholic Charities on September 24. We’ve now learned that both of those cars have been donated to the Archdiocese of Washington and  will be used to bring attention to all of the programs working to help people in the archdiocese, including us here at Catholic Charities!

Of course, with a Pope who has put the poor front and center in his ministry, what else should we expect?

Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, has designated the two Fiats to be used to highlight the work of the local church, moonlighting in Catholic Charities programs and at events.

The Pope Fiats made their public debut on Monday, March 21 at Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in time for a few photos and selfies during the evening commute home.

Keep your eye on #DrivewithFrancis or www.walkwithfrancis.org/fiat to see where the Pope’s ride will be heading next!
