Grand Marshall Darek Knapik and his family were seated in the center of the first row.

Polish faithful of all ages waited serenely for the first sounds of the organ and the choir. Cadets of the West Point Military Academy lead the procession to the altar followed by the members of the Knights of Columbus, Sea League, Polish Scouts, lectors and lastly the celebrants of the Mass, which included the Very Reverend Marian Rojek, Auxiliary Bishop of Przemysl, Poland as well as the Rector of the Cathedral, Rev. Msgr. Robert T. Ritchie who presided at the concelebrated Mass.
