From Popes To Saints

While Pope John Paul II was canonized a Saint at the Vatican in Rome Sunday, students and families from Pope John Paul II School in New Britain attended Mass at Holy Cross Church, to pray for their patron saint and to re-dedicate their school to him. More than 900 attended the Sunday mass which was given in Polish. Pope John Paull II, who was Polish, had visited the Holy Cross School when hew was a Cardinal in 1969.

The school was rededicated in a ceremony following the mass and re-named Saint John Paull II School. At the end of the ceremony, 5 white doves symbolizing peace, were released by their handler, Joe Melluzzo, left, of Unionville. Watching from the school entrance are Rev. Dariosz Gosciniak, Pastor of the Holy Cross Church and Bo Cuprak, Principal of the school, right.
