Wrocław, Poland. An important event for the missionaries of the Claretian Province of Poland occurred on September 1st, 2023. Bishop Jacek Kiciński, CMF, blessed the new Provincial Curia’s premises. Provincial Superior Fr. Piotr Bęza, CMF, the Provincial Council, and the community of Claretians serving in the parish of St. Lawrence in Wrocław attended the ceremony. The Curia was previously located in Warsaw and has now been moved to Wrocław.
During this special occasion, Bishop Jacek has entrusted the decision-making and planning processes that will take place at the Curia to the intercession of St. Anthony Mary Claret, the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the Blessed Claretian Martyrs. He also mentioned the close communion with the General Superior, the General Government, and the entire Congregation.
The newly transferred Curia includes the Secretariat Office, the Provincial Archives, the Council Room, the Provincial and Secretary’s individual rooms, an area for visitors, as well as space for media and cyber-missionaries. Following the blessing, all attendees headed to the chapel to express gratitude to God, reciting the midday prayer’s psalms.
