The Father Leopold Moczygemba Foundation, which “builds bridges between Texas and Silesia, Poland,” is planning a trip to Poland for local residents.

The trip will be Monday, July 23, through Friday, Aug. 3. Travelers will arrive in Wroclaw, the capital of Silesia, and then travel south toward Krakow. The tour will include time in Lower Silesia, with visits to many churches and to the tomb of St. Hedwig in Trzebnica. The group from Texas will participate in a religious celebration at St. Ann Church and meet distant relatives of the first Polish settlers in Texas.

The tour includes a visit to Czestochowa, the religious capital of Poland, and many towns and villages from which the Silesian Texans immigrated in the 1800s. The travelers also will journey to the southern edge of Silesia, to the area of Wisla. The tour also will include the Auschwitz concentration camp and a visit to Wadowice, the birthplace of the late Pope John Paul II.

The itinerary will include visits to the Basilica of Divine Mercy in Lagiewniki, the Salt Mines of Wielczka, and the Tratra Mountain town of Zakopane.

Time is allowed for shopping. The trip includes airfare from San Antonio, hotels, food, English-speaking guides, and admission to attractions. Space is limited.

For more information, call Mrs. Pawelek at 210-333-7369.
