Argentine Pope

A wood-working workshop is one of the services offered at the Santa Maria Madre del Pueblo Parish house in the Villa 1-11-14 favela in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Recently chosen as Pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio did social work in the favela, which was founded in 1968. The Santa Maria Parish continues social work in the slum, much of which is aimed at chemical dependency prevention and treatment. (Australfoto/Douglas Engle)
