According to Father John Solana, the local representative of the Holy See, the historic guesthouse is also the selected property for the upcoming Papal delegation that iss arriving on May 11, 2009 with Pope Benedict XVI. The 70+ members of the delegation will be hosted at Notre Dame and, in fact, other important events surrounding the visit have and are occuring at this venue. On the evening of May 11th a special invitation only Interfaith event will take place at the John Paul Center where leaders from all three faiths will meet to discuss dialogue and understanding.


The guesthouse enjoys a long and rich history in Jerusalem, initially a school, later as a hospital and most recently as a guesthouse for all denominations of Christian visitors from around the world. the rooftop of the Notre Dame Center offers one of the most rewarding views of the entire city of Jerusalem. Adjacent to the property is a professional hospitality training center for Palestinian youth as well as a permanent exhibition on "Who is the Man of the Shroud".

Archbishop Giuseppe Lazzarotto was appointed Saturday by the Vatican to serve as apostolic delegate in Jerusalem and Palestine, a post which usually includes serving as a liaison between the Catholic Church and regions with which the Vatican has no formal diplomatic ties. Lazzarotto who was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI, has been serving as papal envoy to Australia since 2007. He said the role was "a major challenge," but one he "accepts with joy" in which he will "continue to offer [his] full contribution to dialogue and peace." Lazzarotto was born in Carpanè, Vicenza in 1942 and was ordained as a priest for the Diocese of Padua in 1967. He replaces Archbishop Antonio Franco after six years of service in the post.
