„Countries such as England and Wales, France, Germany or Hungary will receive relics of the Blessed Ulma Family from Markowa, which will visit Polish parishes abroad” – announced Bishop Piotr Turzyński, the Delegate of the Polish Bishops’ Conference for the Pastoral Care of Polish Emigrants, during a meeting of members and consultants of the Team of the Polish Episcopate next to the Delegate for the Pastoral Care of Polish Emigrants, which was held on 9 February at the Secretariat of the Polish Bishops’ Conference in Warsaw.
As Bishop Turzyński emphasised, the peregrination of the relics of the Blessed Ulma Family in Polish parishes in Germany will consist of weekly meetings of various prayer communities, during which one day will be specially dedicated to people from outside the Polish community.
“The idea is that the others will be able to learn about the history of the Ulma Family and pray together through their intercession” – he said. „It will be a time for integration, but above all we want to show the beautiful Family who generously lived their faith and served the Jews, saving them, paying the highest price for this, their lives” – emphasised Bishop Turzyński.
