From Newfoundland’s role as a sanctuary for the displaced immigrants of the Irish-Catholic diaspora to a Catholic Bishop’s plea to an English monarch, and from the stories of relics and cultural artifacts to the building of the magnificent Basilica-Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Jack Fitzgerald returns to chronicle the most socially and politically powerful institution in Newfoundland history.
Jack Fitzgerald was born and educated in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. During his career he has been a journalist, a feature writer, a political columnist; a reporter; public affairs writer with CJON and VOCM news services; editor of the Newfoundland Herald and the Newfoundland Chronicle.
