You report: new IBP chaplaincy in Białystok, Poland

Reader Piotr Sawicki sends us the following report:


Father Grzegorz Sniadoch, of the Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP), will become an official pastor for those attached to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in Białystok, northeastern Poland. The Church of the Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Stanislaus the Martyr in Białystok will be the first church in Poland designated by a local bishop (Archbishop Edward Ozorowski) exclusively for the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass and sacraments. The official opening of the chaplaincy will take place on September 28, 2012 (Christ the King), 10:30 AM.

There is another church for exclusive use of TLM in Poland - Holy Ghost church in Bytom. It's the part of BVM parish.

Dextimus, we guess it is in the sense of a church used exclusively by a personal chaplaincy.

Holy Ghost in Bytom is used exclusively by Fr Jaroslaw Steczkowski (court official in Diocese of Gliwice, parish resident in BVM Bytom). Fr Jaroslaw since 2010 didn't celebrate NOM at all. There is TLM here every day but Wed, when Fr Jaroslaw celebrates TLM in Armenian Church (Holy Trinity) in Gliwice.

To our Polish friends:

New Catholic has already explained what the post means when it refers to the Church of the Holy Name as "the first church in Poland designated by a local bishop (Archbishop Edward Ozorowski) exclusively for the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass and sacraments."

We are aware of Holy Ghost church in Bytom and its wonderful work. There is no need to belabor this point.

This is great news for our Polish friends. Many thanks to Archbishop Ozorowski for this noble pastoral act.

On another note: does Rorate or others know what became of the Ecclesia Dei inquiry/visit to the IBP, and specifically their issues with the IBP's officially exclusive use of the TLM and Traditional Sacraments, as well as the content and sources of their Seminary education?

Yes, this is really great news! Good for them. Any chance on seeing the inside of the church? ;-)
