Bishop Mroziewski, a native of Poland, helped organize the annual Polish Heritage Mass. He had attended Cardinal Wyszyński’s beatification Mass Sept. 12 at Warsaw’s Church of Divine Providence.
The archbishop who steered Poland’s Catholic Church through communist rule and a blind Franciscan nun who founded one of Europe’s foremost centers for the sight-impaired took a step closer to sainthood Sept. 12.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced the postponement of the beatification in Poland for the late Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński. Still, Polish Catholics in Brooklyn and Queens maintain their support for the cardinal’s cause for sainthood.
