For Boston faithful, canonizations are personal, profound

As Pope John Paul II passed through Rome one day in 1988, greeting people as he went, a Polish teenager managed to thrust her hand through the cheering crowd pressed against the barricades. Improbably — unforgettably — the pontiff shook it.

“I will never forget the lightness of his hand,” said Joanna Bereaud, now a 42-year-old music therapist who lives in Swampscott.

A quarter-century earlier, Pope John XXIII had a spot alongside President Kennedy in Mary Jane England’s gallery of heroes. The future doctor and Regis College president, then in her early 20s, saw Pope John as a reformer who breathed new life into a stagnant church.


May 4th, 2014. Movie screening – Kamienie na Szaniec

Polish Cultural Fundation in Boston has a pleasure to invite you for a screening of a movie Kamienie na Szaniec kamienie-na-szaniec-ksiazka based on a legendary book by Aleksander Kaminski. The movie, directed by Robert Glinski, has been a spectacular success in Poland (500.000 viewers during first two weeks). The story describes the small acts of sabotage carried out by the Polish underground scout movement, the Gray Ranks. It portrays slightly fictionalized account of real lives of Gray Rank members (known by their noms-de-guerre Rudy, Zośka, Alek), with the final act centred around the Operation Arsenal.
