Cardinal Vincent Prays for Polish Community on 1050th Anniversary of Baptism of Poland

On 6 June 2015, as members of the Polish community gather to pray at St John the Evangelist Church in Putney, Cardinal Vincent reassured them of his prayers:

'I am pleased to be able send you my greetings on the occasion of  this prayer gathering in which you ask God’s blessing on the people of Poland and for the forthcoming World Youth Day, in Cracow.

I greet, in particular, His Excellency Archbishop Damian Zimoń, and assure him of my prayers.

I am aware of a large youth gathering taking place today in Lednica, Poland, as an important part of the preparations for the 1050th anniversary of the baptism of Poland.  

May your prayers this evening and those of Polish people everywhere  bring God’s abundant blessings on your homeland and on all that you give to the universal Church in so many ways.'
