This year's celebration of St. Andrew Bobola's Feast in his national sanctuary in Warsaw was particularly festive. It was held on 16 May. The liturgy, with numerous participation of the faithful, was led by the Apostolic Nuncio in Poland, Archbishop Salvatore Pennacchio.

The celebration had a special character, as this year marks the 70th anniversary of the canonization of the Jesuit martyr. Moreover, his liturgical memory is also the day of the patron of the Pontifical Faculty of Theology in Warsaw Collegium Bobolanum and the parish at 61 Rakowiecka Street.

The evening mass was concelebrated by Bishop Wiesław Lechowicz, President of the Polish Bishops' Commission for Polish diaspora and Poles abroad, and the auxiliary bishop of the Warsaw Archdiocese Piotr Jarecki. The homily was delivered by the Bishop of Płock, Piotr Libera. He focused on the call that martyrs such as St. Andrew make to us with their lives and examples. This Jesuit from the times of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth was cruelly murdered by the Cossacks on 16 May 1657 in Janów Poleski.
