My name is Father Grzegorz (Gregory) Ogorzalek and I am the newly assigned Associate Pastor at St. Paul the Apostle Parish in Burlington. I was ordained 14 years ago and most recently served as Spiritual Director at the Seminary in Lublin, Poland. I am excited to be in Canada working in this parish and with our affiliate schools. I have some experience working with young people and am eager to get to know the students and school staff in our parish community.
I will be visiting our elementary and secondary schools on a regular basis. It is my intent to strengthen the connection between schools and parish and as such I will make myself available to you, as much as parish duties let me to. My first task is sacramentals preparation (First Communion and Confirmation), but I can make extra classroom visits if requested, can address specific questions you or your students may have about Catholicism, I can hear confessions or offer spiritual guidance if requested.
I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible. I also hope to see you at Sunday Mass at St. Paul’s and ask that you introduce yourself to me when you are at the church. You can contact me via email or telephone as noted below.
Yours in Christ,
Reverend Grzegorz Ogorzalek firstname.lastname@example.org
