 Our class Saint is Saint John Paul II.  


Pope John Paul II was born Karol Józef Wojtyła. He was born in Poland on the 18th May 1920 and was head of the Catholic Church from the 16th October 1978 to his death on the 2nd April 2005. He was the second longest-serving pope in history and the first non-Italian pope in over 455 years.

He was the most travelled pope, making 104 international trips. He was the first ever pope to visit a mosque, which is a place of worship in Islam.

John Paul II was canonised by Pope Francis in 2014, which means he is now known as Saint John Paul II.

"Remember that you are never alone, Christ is with you on your journey every day of your lives! He has called you and chosen you to live in the freedom of the children of God. Turn to him in prayer and in love. Ask him to grant you the courage and strength to live in this freedom always. Walk with him who is “the Way, the Truth and the Life!”


This half term, spring one, we are focusing on the virtues of Faith-filled and hopeful.

The children at St Paul's are growing to be Faith-filled in our beliefs and hopeful for the future.
We grow by passing on the living and faith-filled tradition of Jesus Christ; by having persevering faith in everyone, and by encouraging each other to have faith and hope in ourselves and others.
