MORRIS PARK - Students at Saint Francis Xavier School in Morris Park received today a visit from Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

The archbishop of New York led a Mass for all the students and visited their classrooms. A select few got to have lunch with him.

Those lucky ones were winners of a schoolwide essay contest, called "What my faith means to me."

Students told News 12 The Bronx that they were both excited and nervous to meet the man they've learned so much about.

This was Cardinal Dolan's first visit to the school since he was appointed archbishop of New York in 2009.
