Soldier’s Day at the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa

August 5, 2022

Once again, the Polish Falcons of America has been invited to participate in the annual Soldier’s Day at the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Doylestown, Pa. This solemn celebration will be held on Sunday, August 14. It is organized by the community of former Polish soldiers living in the United States and Canada.

This year, the celebration will focus on the 70th anniversary of the death of Dr. Teofil Starzynski, a founder of the War Effort of the Polish Emigration in America and the first President of the Polish Army Veterans Association of America.

The program for the day is as follows:

  • 11 a.m. — Laying of wreaths on the grave of Dr. Teofil Starzyński and by the monument “The Avenger” at the Veterans Cemetery
  • 11:30 a.m. — Celebration before the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa (National Anthems, Roll Call of Honor, Taps Bugle Call, Rifle Salute, Review of Troops and Parade)
  • 12:30 p.m. — Holy Mass
  • 1:30 p.m. – 2 p.m. — Presentations by distinguished guests
  • 2 p.m. — Lunch in cafeteria

I am asking for as many Falcon Members to attend as possible. If you plan to attend please let me know as soon as possible so we can let the organizers know what to expect. Please contact me if you have any questions or need additional information.

Czolem,
