Polish seminarian Deacon Piotr (pronounced Peter) Kmiecik will journey one more step closer toward his goal of becoming a priest next year for the Diocese of Biloxi, MS. Peter Kmiecik hails from Lindow, which is located in south Poland, very close to Czestochowa, where the famous Pauline Monastery of Jasna Gora is located, which is home of the Black Madonna, a very famous painting and shrine to the Virgin Mary. Deacon Peter is currently studying at SS. Cyril and Methodius Seminary in Orchard Lake. On September 7, 2013 he started his deacon’s assignment in our parish and he will stay with us for the whole academic year. We are so happy to have Deacon Peter among us and we wish him good luck and all the best on his way to the priesthood.
