The Most Rev. John W. Yanta, DD, bishop emeritus of the Amarillo Diocese, is the recipient of the 2014 Fidelitas Medal, awarded by the Orchard Lake Schools, a Polish educational institution.

This special recognition was first awarded in 1949. Previous recipients include Czeslaw Milosz, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1980; Edmund Cardinal Szoka; and Joseph Cardinal Glemp, the Primate of Poland.

The honor was announced March 15, during the Orchard Lake Schools 41st annual Ambassadors Ball in Birmingham, Mich.

Bishop Yanta was prevented by health reasons from attending the ceremony, but sent a letter of appreciation and acceptance. This was read by his delegate, the Rev. Wieslaw Iwaniec, the pastor in Panna Maria, Texas.

In the letter, Yanta said, “Thank you very much for honoring me today ... my relationship with the St. Cyril and Methodius Seminary and the Orchard Lake Schools began in 1960s. I am proud to say, that my great-grandmother Mary Ann Moczygemba was a cousin of Father Leopold Moczygemba, Patriarch of American Polonia, who petitioned Pope Leo XIII for permission to build a Polish institution for higher education here in the United States. Then the aging Father Leopold Moczygemba prevailed upon the younger Father Joseph Dombrowski to see to its construction and grand opening in 1885. Again, thank you for the great honor you have bestowed on me, my parents, and my immigrant Silesian Polish ancestors.”
