We encourage everyone to pray through the intercession of Blessed Father Jerzy Popiełuszko. Special folders containing prayers can be found in the first pew of our church closest to the reliquary of Fr. Jerzy. We ask that you take advantage of them, but please do not take them home. In the coming weeks we are planning to set up a journal in which people will be able to list blessings obtained through the intercession of Fr. Jerzy and his relics.
