POLISH AMERICAN CONGRESS MICHIGAN DIVISION INVITES TO POLISH NOVENA AT STE. ANNE DE DETROIT

HAMTRAMCK, MI – St. Anne De Detroit Church, located near Ambassador’s Bridge in Detroit, dates back to Cadillac’s settling of Detroit in 1701, and it’s considered the second-oldest continuously operating Roman Catholic parish in the U.S.  The current Neo-Gothic structure, the parish’s 8th church building, dates to 1886 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

What was once Detroit’s signature French-language parish – the old school building has the name “Ecole Ste. Anne” carved into it – now has a growing, vibrant, primarily Hispanic congregation.

But once a year, for 10 days, the church becomes a site for Ethnic Novena, catered to the diverse community of Metro Detroit.

On Wednesday, July 25, a Polish Novena will be held, with Bishop Robert Fisher as Presider, and featuring award-winning Filarets Choir.  Knights of Columbus, Polish dance groups will also be featured.  We encourage all Polish American local organizations to come with their banners to be represented in the Novena opening procession.  The Polish American Congress Michigan Division acts as the coordinator of the Polish Novena.

Refreshments will be served after the Novena at the Parish Hall.

St. Anne De Detroit Church: 1000 St Anne St, Detroit, MI 48216.  Visit www.ste-anne.org for more information.

The Seminary was founded over 130 years ago by Father Jozef Dabrowski, who received this mission from Father Leopold Moczygemba, OFM Conv., the Patriarch of the Polish American Community.  During the Seminary’s rich history, it has made an outstanding contribution to the Polish American and broader Catholic faith community, educating thousands of priests and educators. Thanks to Father Dabrowski’s exceptional wisdom, clarity of mission, testament, and example, the Orchard Lake Seminary and related institutions have been uniquely and generously financed by the Polish American community throughout their long and illustrious history.

Thanks to donations and financial support from the 10,000,000-strong Polish American community, Orchard Lake contains the largest Polish American archives in the United States, documenting the rich history of Polish diaspora and its contributions to the United
States.  Polish Americans funded the Library and donated volumes of unique historical books and publications, some dating back to 1600.  Such a collection is of unique importance: most historical libraries and archives in Poland were destroyed during the cataclysms of the Second World War.  Therefore, many unique historical artifacts have survived exclusively in the archive at Orchard Lake.

“Dear Parents, I Am Sending You My Picture, But You Probably Won’t Recognize Me”

HAMTRAMCK, Mich. – That statement, written in a letter to her parents by a young Polish immigrant woman in Chicago in 1891, summarizes the essence of the immigration experience for women. Dr. Thaddeus Radzilowski, who has written on the history of Polish immigrant women, will lecture on this topic on April 27, 2017 at the Warren Civic Center Library (1 City Square, Warren, MI 48093) at 6 p.m.

 

The immigration experience of women paralleled, in many ways, that of their male counterparts. Yet it was distinctive in many of the challenges and opportunities it offered. Women immigrated as part of family groups, as mothers with children reuniting with husbands, joining fiancés, and as single immigrants seeking adventure and wider opportunities in the New World. America transformed them. It changed their outlook and allowed them to accomplish things that would have been impossible in the villages they left behind. They crossed the oceans alone, found employment in distant cities, chose their own marriage partners, and built homes, families, and communities without the support of female relatives. They, in turn, also transformed America. They built a new society and a new culture in urban neighborhoods in smoky industrial cities, and on remote farmsteads on the American prairies. They created a myriad of organizations, clubs, and circles, as well as neighborhood networks to replace the support systems of village and family they left behind.

 

The lecture will be followed by questions and discussion. The discussion will open opportunities to explore the individual and family stories of audience. It is sponsored by the Piast Institute and funded in part by a grant from the Michigan Humanities Council.
