Rev. Dr. JACEK PIETRUSZKA 1967-2019


Father dr. Jacek Pietruszka, Director of the Museum Family Home of the Holy Father John Paul II in Wadowice died on November 2, on the day of the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed.

He was an extraordinary man with an open heart and mind. He was always helpful and he gave advice in every situation. He was the initiator of the „Going to school with Lolek” campaign which provides support to the children of poor families in Wadowice. Thanks to his efforts, among the works of our museum you can admire Ali Agca’s pistol, Cardinal Karol Wojtyła’s draft notebook or an act confirming the election of Cardinal Krakow to the Chair of Saint Peter.

From 2013, he was Deputy Director for Organization Affairs and he became a Director of the museum in 2015. He worked until the last moment to prepare our institution for the centenary celebrations of Saint John Paul II’s birth.

We will forever remember him as a true vocation priest. He was a caring son, a great boss and above all a good man.

„Those who live in the memory of the living do not die” Rev. Jan Twardowski. Only those who are forgotten die.

Father Jacek, thank you for everything! For each day spent together, for motivation, for a good word, for each smile and each song sung while walking up the stairs. We are proud to have had the opportunity to create this unique place with you.

Management and employees.
The Museum Family Home of the Holy Father John Paul II in Wadowice.
