Augustine Church, Barberton, OH) (July 8, 2012) Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time Follow the example of Jesus in todays gospel.

This stunning experience follows John Paul IIs life from child to leader of the worlds largest church, focusing on his relationship with the Jewish people, begun as a boy. Visitors experience the world he knew Wadowice, Poland, life in Warsaw during the war years, and the sweeping changes of the Second Vatican Council, and emulate his historic visit to the Western Wall in Jerusalem by inserting prayers into a 20-foot long wall replica.
