Jarek25lecie Congratulation Father Jarek!!! On Sunday, June 17, 2012 during a Mass of thanksgiving, Reverend Jaroslaw Lawrenz CM was celebrating his 25th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. Father Jarosław Lawrenz was born in Bydgoszcz, Poland, on July 24, 1962. For the first two years after his ordination on May 30, 1987, Fr. Jaroslaw was assigned to a parish in Słubice.Then he decided to go to continue his work as a missionary and with the blessing of his Provincial Superior he went through Belgium (one year of preparation) to Zaire.

55 years of priesthood

Our sincerest wishes go to Fr. Joseph Szpilski CM on the 55th Anniversary of his Ordination.  We wish him good health, an abundance of God’s blessings, perpetual inner spiritual peace, which he has had until now and all the best.  We thank God for Your vocation, Fr. Joe. 

We thank God for June 24, 1956 when Fr. Joe and 30 deacons in the Congregation of the Mission  lying face down during the Litany to All Saints made the final decision to be ordained into the priesthood on that day.  He became an Apostle of Christ, Missionary, in Poland at first, and later on American soil he preached the Good News of Salvation and served God and people.   
Happy Anniversary, Fr. Joe!

Also present at this special event were her husband and her father. As an expression of their gratitude, children from the school presented Mrs. Ippolito with flowers and a scrapbook commemorating her many years of dedicated service to the students of our school. Thank you and God Bless You.


Nowhere else was the anticipation of Pope John Paul II’s May 1st beatification greater than at St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish in Brooklyn, New York.  Prayers for his sainthood began in earnest the day he died, just six years earlier. 

Nowhere else were they as ardent and as hopeful as they were at this famous landmark church that began serving Greenpoint’s Polish immigrants as far back as the 19th century.  Because Father Marek Sobczak C.M. was observing his 30th anniversary of the day he first became a priest, what could be a better way to honor both their pastor and the pope than at a special mass celebrated at the church which now stands on land the City of New York had renamed “John Paul II Square?” Continue reading PRAYERS AND A TRIBUTE TO THE POPE AND THE PASTOR

Father Edmund Gutowski CM – 50th anniversary of priesthood

 50 years ago our parish bulletin Patron had printed those two articles on Fr. Ed:

The many years of expectations have drawn to a close. This was perhaps one of the many thoughts of Father Edmund Gutowski, C. M., one of our parishioners on Ascension Thursday. Why? Because on that May 26 he had stepped out of the chapel at Mary Immaculate Seminary, Northampton, Pa., “a priest forever, according to the order of Melchisedech.” Yes, a day of joy and expectation not only for his family and friends but also for us parishioners who have come to know and await this same expectation – the ordination to Christ’s Holy Priesthood. And we should indeed be proud of this fact that another member of the parish has received the Holy Sacrament of Holy Orders.
