The year was 1980.  Roman Zabinski and his wife Marcy, had the rare opportunity to travel to the Vatican to photograph Pope John Paul II.  Roman and Marcy were invited to accompany Fr. Skiba, a parish priest from Assumption RC Church in Black Rock.  Fr. Skiba was a classmate of the Pope in Poland.  The purpose of the trip was to record the presentation of a bronze relief likeness of the pope by Niagara Falls artist, Joseph Slawinski.

For security reasons, Roman had to be granted special clearance to be up close to the Pope with his camera.
