Canonisation of Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II

Date: 21 Apr 2014

This Sunday, 27th April, the Holy Father will canonise two of his predecessors: Blessed John XXIII and Blessed John Paul II.

Members of the Presentation Family will be in St Peter's Square to witness this historic event.

It was Pope John Paul who beatified our founder, Blessed Edmund Rice, in 1996.

You can follow the canonisation ceremony LIVE on the Vatican Player and on the Vatican's YouTube channel.

Here's a nice video of the life of Pope John XXIII and a fantastic CNN documentary on the final days of John Paul II.
