The Mass, organized by the Michigan Division of the Polish American Congress, will also pay tribute to Katyn Massacre victims. Fr. Bogdan Milosz, the pastor of St. Faustina Parish, will celebrate the Mass.
The 2010 Polish Air Force Tu-154 crash occurred on April 10, 2010, when aircraft crashed near the city of Smolensk, Russia, killing all 96 people onboard. These included Polish President Lech Kaczynski and his wife, former President Ryszard Kaczorowski and other officials and members of Polish clergy. The flight was conducted for the purpose of taking many high ranking Polish officials to ceremonies marking the 70th anniversary of the Katyn Massacre.
The Katyn massacre was a series of mass executions of Polish nationals carried out by the People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs (NKVD), the Soviet secret police, in April and May 1940.

WE INVITE YOU!
