JFK’s Inauguration: 50 Year Anniversary

Last edited 20th January 2011

20 January 2011 marks 50 years since the famous inauguration speech of the first Catholic president, John F Kennedy. As we all know JFK was not always a good example of what a Catholic politician should stand for... however the fact that a Catholic was elected president in the first place was in itself historic. According to a recent survey by the Knights of Columbus - of which JFK was a member - most people believe that the key themes from President Kennedy’s speech are still important more than 50 years later! Have a listen to the speech in this video, and see what you think...
