The theology department at Pope John Paul II High School in Royersford hosted the program Friends in Faith on March 31 in which juniors and seniors of the archdiocesan high school met with their grade counterparts from Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy in Bryn Mawr.
The day included opportunities for students to engage in activities that promoted interfaith dialogue to advance mutual respect, understanding and solidarity in the spirit of St. John Paul II.
Nearly 200 students participated in the program. Friends in Faith is coordinated by Janet Wigoff, theology chair at Pope John Paul II High School.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
