  • With the restoration of St. Michael the Archangel, begun in 2004, well underway, the project has been expanded to include a proposed belfry museum to be overseen by Father Roman Dubec who serves the tiny Pielgrzymka church as well as his Gorlice parish.

    The tall entrance belfry, its exterior recently re-shingled, contains a number of polychrome paintings heavily water-stained from damage occurred before the recent roof repairs. Father Dubec has chosen this area to be restored with special attention to an icon over the church entrance.

    As described in the accompanying article, (see translation), in addition to the restoration of these wall paintings, a museum will be created in the upper level of the belfry with exhibits displaying liturgical books, early icons, historical material and the paschal tomb which is still used annually. An appeal is underway to raise $2400 in matching grant funds for this second museum project. Please view our belfy appeal flyer and join us in supporting this important project to preserve our ancestral heritage.
