His Eminence Cardinal Karol Wojtyła visited USA two times. During his first pastoral pilgrimage in 1969, 50 years ago, he visited St. Stanislaus B.M. Church, St. Casimir Parish and Polonia in Cleveland. At St. Stanislaus Bishop and Martyr Church in Cleveland, he said Holy Mass on September 19, 1969.
His visit was very well documented by Msgr. Peszkowski, Faculty of the Orchard Lake Seminary and members of St. Stanislaus B.M. Church.
