Visit of Bishop Lechowicz from the Polish National Conference

Bishop Wiesław Lechowicz, delegate of the Polish Conference of Bishops to Polish communities throughout the world, was our guest this past week along with Monsignor Anthony Czarnecki, Rector of Saint Joseph’s Basilica in Webster, Massachusetts.  We were joined for lunch by Monsignor Caron, Father Briody and two of our semianrians who are fluent in Polish, Mark Olejnik and David Madejski. We had a fascinating conversation concerning the Polish Church all around the world, learning that more than twenty million Polish people live outside the territorial boundaries of Poland. Bishop Lechowicz, a former Seminary Rector in his native Diocese of Tarnów, compared notes concerning formation at seminaries here and in Poland.
