John Paul II Foundation for Sports to be unveiled at the Vatican

.- On July 28, the John Paul II Foundation for Sports will be introduced during a press conference at the Marconi Hall at Vatican Radio’s headquarters.  The new foundation’s mission will involve the organization of a three-year program of national and international sporting events focused on promoting the dignity of the human person, especially among young people.

According to the SIR news agency, the president of the new institution, Edio Costantini, said, “The creation of the foundation and the beginning of its activities coincides, not by coincidence, with the Pauline Year.  In his letters, St. Paul often referred to the Christian life as an athletic race that, in the end, would be awarded with an incorruptible crown.”
 
Bishop Carlo Mazza of Fidenza, the honorary president of the Foundation, and Bishop Josef Clemens, the secretary of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, will be present at the ceremony.

The John Paul II Foundation for Sports will be headquartered on the Via della Conciliazione, which is directly in front of St. Peter’s Square.
