The Catholic Historical Society will be sponsoring a presentation on the canonization of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II. Bishop Zurek attended this historical event and he will be our guest speaker.
In the West Texas Catholic Bishop Zurek stated: "It was the only time for me that I attended the liturgy of canonization. In his homily, Pope Francis spoke about the popes of mercy, popes of forgiveness, popes of compassion, the popes who engendered and en kindled a tremendous hope at times when the world was in dire need of a ray of hope and faith. Both popes used the phrase: 'Do not be afraid.' John XXIII used it as well as John Paul II. This is a memory that I will treasure for life."
This insightful event will be held at St. Lucien's Chapel. Bishop Zurek and the Catholic Historical Board would greatly appreciate a full house.
