Poland's Roman Catholic church plans to build a center devoted to interfaith dialogue in honor of late Pope John Paul II at the site in southern Poland where he toiled during the Nazi occupation of his country, a church official said Friday. The center is to be named "Be Not Afraid" after one of the Polish-born pontiff's best-known mottos. Plans foresee it being built on land near Krakow where Karol Wojtyla, the future John Paul, performed forced labor in a quarry during World War II, said Rev. Robert Necek, spokesman for the Krakow Archbishop Stanislaw Dziwisz. Necek said the idea for the project came from Dziwisz, John Paul's longtime personal secretary and friend who in August was installed as archbishop in the city where John Paul has served in the same position. The Zycie Warszawy daily reported that the center would include a museum, a library, exhibition halls, a boarding school, a hospital, a conference hall and sports facilities.
