50th Ordination Anniversary & Visitors from Bytow 2013

On Saturday, June 1, 2013, the Polish Museum’s founder, Reverend Paul Breza, celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination to the Roman Catholic priesthood. Special guests, representing Winona’s sister city of Bytow, Poland, were Mayor Ryszard Sylka, Council Chair Leszek Waszkiewicz, and educator/translator Asia Malek. A special 4 pm Mass was offered at the Basilica of Saint Stanislaus Kostka, followed by a social hour and a banquet at the Polish Museum’s Morrison Annex. A full house (and then some) arrived at the Annex to congratulate Father Paul and wish him well on this joyous occasion.
