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 has worked as a journalist and political columnist with the St. John’s Daily News; a reporter and public affairs writer with CJON and VOCM news; and as the editor of The Newfoundland Herald and Newfoundland Chronicle. He lives in St. John’s.
