Soon, a memorial plaque made of bronze will be placed at the Pope Cross in Vienna (Papstkreuz im Donaupark), commemorating events from 40 years ago: On September 11, 1983, a solemn Mass was held at this location, attended by Pope John Paul II and numerous believers. Symbolically, it commemorates the traces of the Pope who has since been declared a saint.
The task of designing this memorial plaque was entrusted by the association “Papstkreuz im Donaupark” to the artistic studio Huber in Graz. The ceremonial dedication of the plaque is planned during the anniversary Mass on September 11, 2023.
The “Papstkreuz im Donapark” association requests financial support to cover the necessary costs.
Detailed information regarding donations and other organizational details can be found on the association’s website at papstkreuz.at.”
