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.
