Sustaining his Legacy

Sustaining his Legacy

Category : News

The Father Joseph Walijewski Legacy Guild was established to sustain the legacy and promote the cause of the Servant of God, Father Joseph Walijewski. Since its inception in 2013, over 1,800 people have become members. These members have taken the time to learn more about Father Joe’s life, prayed for his beatification and canonization, and helped sustain the legacy he left behind through their financial contributions.

“The chief task is to provide leadership and financial sustainability for the missions started by Father Joe.”

While the canonization process is important to the mission of the Father Joseph Walijewski Legacy Guild, the task of preparing the documents and testimony for delivery to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints at the Vatican typically takes about five years. The ongoing and chief task of the Father Joseph Walijewski Legacy Guild is to provide financial sustainability and leadership for the missions and organizations started by Father Joe that are still serving countless people today.

Thank you for your prayers and financial support. Please continue to pray for the advancement of his cause and help spread the word about his life and legacy. Take a few moments to learn more about his life and let his model of humble service guide you in your own pursuit of Christ-like service. If you are able, consider making a financial contribution to the Father Joseph Walijewski Legacy Guild. Your gift will mean so much.
