.- Churches across Canada have organized memorial services next month to commemorate Pope John Paul II. With the approaching first anniversary of his death, April 2, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has made commemorative materials available for use in churches, chapels and schools.
A portrait of His Holiness Pope John Paul II, a reproduction of the original black-and-white rendering, is available in a limited edition. Printed on archival quality paper, each signed and numbered print comes with a certificate of authenticity. Each portrait sells at $100.
Posters of the late Pope are suitable to announce the place and times of memorial services. They cost $2 each or $5 for packages of 5.
Finally, large-format banners on weather-resistant vinyl, with hanging grommets at each corner are available for $47 each.
