The new pontiff, Pope Francis I is 76-years-old and from Argentina. He is also from the Jesuit order of priests. That is the order that founded McQuaid Jesuit High School in Brighton.
In Rochester, there are five local Jesuit priests. McQuaid says Pope Francis's background will help him lead as pope. Jesuits are known as "God's Marines" and they do a lot of missionary work. Jesuits are also known for their dedication to both God and church.
