On Saturday, October 2, 2021, at the Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels, seven Redemptorists of the Warsaw Province received the diaconate through the ministry of Msgr. Artur Ważny, auxiliary bishop of the Diocese of Tarnów.
The day of deacon ordination began with a solemn Holy Mass celebrated in the seminary chapel, during which our confreres, candidates for ordination, Ireneusz Krzywoń, Karol Łukaszczyk, Grzegorz Pruś, Patryk Reczek, Dominik Strychacz, Marcin Wojdan and Norbert Żukliński. They made a profession of faith and an oath of allegiance to the Rector of the Redemptorist Seminary in Tuchow, Fr. Maciej Sadowski, CSsR. After the conclusion of Morning Prayer, Fr. Rector blessed the new dalmatics and books of the Liturgy of the Hours, which the prefect of the studentate, Fr. Adam Kośla CSsR, presented to the candidates for ordination.
The Holy Mass combined with the ordination to the diaconate began at 11:00 am in the Sanctuary courtyard. Bishop Artur Ważny, who presided over the liturgy, in his homily addressed to those taking holy orders, pointed out the need for the support of saints and angels to successfully overcome various weaknesses and disorders, since it is about the human interior, about the authenticity of the preacher of the Word. Bishop Arthur pointed out three words that should be the light of the path of the deacon ministry that the seven Redemptorists begin: The Kingdom of God, which they are to build; the attitude of child who adores the Father, follows Jesus, obeys and accepts admonitions; and finally humility, which recognises dependence on God.

The ceremony of the diaconate ordination gathered many guests in the sanctuary square in Tuchow: Redemptorist brothers from Poland and abroad, priests, nuns, as well as families, friends and acquaintances of our new deacons.
Let us surround the 6th year alumni, newly ordained as deacons, with a special prayer that they may be a sign of vividness for the Church and the Congregation.
