Three young Polish men from SS. Cyril &

Methodius Seminary graduated on Saturday,

May 6, 2017. Two will be returning to the

Diocese of Brooklyn, New York. Reverend

Mr. Przemyslaw Bak graduated with two

degrees – a Master of Divinity and a Master

of Arts in Theology. Reverend Mr. Kamil

Bober earned a Master of Divinity. The third,

Reverend Mr. Krzysztof Piotrowski, also

graduated with a Master of Divinity, and

returns to the Diocese of Venice, Florida.

Two Deacons, who completed their studies at

SSCMS in May of 2016, were also ordained in

late spring. Reverend Mr. Boguslaw Rebacz

was ordained for the Diocese of Denver, Colorado, and Reverend Mr. Rafal Pyrchla for the Diocese of

Springfield, Illinois.

“I am so proud of all of them and look forward to calling them ‘my brother priests’ this month,” said

Monsignor Thomas C. Machalski, Jr., Chancellor-Rector, Orchard Lake Schools. “The Church in the United

States will have these five new priests and we, here at Orchard Lake, have helped make this important

contribution to the Church.”

Established in 1885 in Detroit and today on the shores of Orchard Lake, SS. Cyril & Methodius Seminary

educates Catholic priests for diocese throughout the United States beginning with its first two ordinations in

1890. Originally chartered to train priests primarily to minister to Polish immigrants, today’s graduates serve

at diocese with diverse ethnicity. Although most seminarians are of Polish ancestry, many are not.
