A CELEBRATION OF THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF POPE SAINT JOHN XXIII

Notre Dame of Jerusalem Centre

Organized by
The Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding and Cooperation

An all-day celebration of learning and fellowship for Jews and Christians of all backgrounds to honor the achievements of Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, who later became Pope John XXIII. The son of poor sharecroppers, Roncalli became a Vatican envoy who secretly saved countless lives during the Shoah and as Pope John XXIII revolutionized the Catholic Church and its relations with the Jews.
