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.
