Fr. Jacek Wawrzyniak

RIP: 19/01/2021 - Wrocław

Fr. Jacek Wawrzyniak was born on 30 July 1971 in Poznań. He did his novitiate in Bagno where he professed his first religious profession on 8 September 1993. After having completed his studies of Philosophy and Theology at the Salvatorian Major Seminary in Bagno, he was ordained a priest in Trzebinia on 29 May1999. Pastorally, Fr. Jacek worked mainly in the parish ministry, but he also served with big zeal in the apostolate of popular missions and retreats, at the Bagno SDS Seminary as vice rector, and in other communities as the local superior. He was involved in the development and promotion of the movement Lay Salvatorians in Poland. Apart from that, Fr. Jacek was great promotor of spreading the cult of Saint Antony of Padua in the parish church in Oborniki Śląskie, where he was the parish priest since 2010. The last very meaningful initiative undertaken by Fr. Jacek, being a faithful spiritual son of our Founder, was his direct participation in the commission for the preparation of the beatification of Fr. Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan and for the promotion of his veneration, with the scope to make him and the Salvatorian charism more known among the people. In the middle of the Corona-pandemic, Fr. Jacek completed his earthly pilgrimage in the morning of 19 January 2021 in a hospital in Wrocław. He passed away at the age of 49, after having been a Salvatorian for 28 years.
