The Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn, led a special Mass in honor of Polish Heritage on Sunday, October 17, 2021, at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph, located in the Prospect Heights section of Brooklyn.

The main celebrant was the Most Reverend Andrzej Zglejszewski, Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre. The Most Reverend Witold Mroziewski, Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn, concelebrated the Mass.

This year, the Polish Heritage Mass was offered in celebration of last month’s beatification of Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski. Blessed Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski led the Catholic Church of Poland during the Communist era and fought for the free exercise of faith. Cardinal Wyszynski was imprisoned for his resistance from 1953-1956. He served as a mentor to Pope St. John Paul II.

The Polish Ambassador to the United Nations, Krzysztof Szczerski, and the Consul General of the Republic of Poland in New York, Adrian Kubicki, were among those in attendance.

Polish American Heritage Month is celebrated during the month of October, to highlight the contributions that Polish Americans have made to the United States. This year, the theme of the Pulaski Day Parade was the commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the birth of St. John Paul II.
