I am the Resurrection and the Life; whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.

Józef Pyrek

Fr. Józef Pyrek

RIP: 30/10/2020 - Krakow

Fr. Józef Pyrek was born on 17 February 1932 in Raclawice near Olkusz in Poland. After completing primary school, he went to the secondary school of Wladyslaw Sikorski, led by the Salvatorians in Krakow-Zakrzówek. He finished his novitiate professing his first vows on 8 September 1949 in Bagno. After that, he was sent to complete his secondary studies at the Salvatorian minor seminary in Mikolów. From 1951 until 1957, he studied philosophy and theology at the institute of the Dominicans in Krakow, the city where he was ordained a priest on 7 October 1956. One could define his apostolic life based on two main pillars: Fr. Józef was spiritual director, confessor and teacher for many years at our seminary in Bagno. However, he was also a very good writer and author of numerous articles and publications on catechetics, spirituality and social and political problems. He worked for many years in the Salvatorian Publishing House in Krakow. In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fr. Józef died on 30 October 2020 in Krakow, at the age of 88 and after having been for 71 years a Salvatorian.
