John Paul II Cultural Centre

Nestled among the natural surroundings of Southwestern Ontario.

The John Paul II Cultural Centre is affectionately known as the JP2 centre. This centre offers the priceless opportunity to step away from the busyness and noise of our lives and encounter nature, peace, quiet, and God.
