Lubbock is the first city in the U.S. that has been chosen by the Vatican to host an exhibit honoring former Pope, John Paul II.
The exhibit features more than 100 of John Paul II's personal artifacts and memorabilia. The showcase was designed to highlight four different phases of his life.
Father Malcom Neyland, Executive Director of the National Exhibits Association, said it's a very humbling experience to be able to share these rare artifacts with the Lubbock community.
The exhibit will be in Lubbock Friday, March 15 through Friday, May 31. It will be held at The Catholic Renewal Center of the Diocese of Lubbock located at 4620 4th St.
