St. Ambrose University, Galvin Fine Arts Center and Library

Free and Open to the Public

A photographic exploration of papal visits to Israel from 1964-2014 will be on display at St. Ambrose University, Davenport, Iowa, beginning Friday, January 5, 2018.

The exhibition is titled "Building Bridges of Faith: Photographs of Papal Visits to the
Holy Land, 1964-2014" and features papal visits to nearly a dozen Holy Land sites, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which is recognized as the site of the crucifixion and tomb of Jesus of Nazareth; Yad Vashem, Israel's official memorial to the victims of the Holocaust; the Cenacle on Mt. Zion, traditionally held to be the site of the Last Supper; and the Western Wall.

The 44 historic images depict stirring scenes as well as quiet, intimate moments during visits to the Holy Land by some of the most well-traveled popes in history: Blessed Pope Paul VI, Pope Saint John Paul II, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis.

Please join us Jan. 21 for a celebratory opening of the exhibit at the Galvin Fine Arts Center, from 2-4 p.m., with a short program at 2:30 p.m.

Sponsored by St. Ambrose University, Middle East Institute, Davenport Diocese, Muslim Community of the Quad Cities, and the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities
