Join us for an exclusive screening of the award-winning documentary “Messenger of the Truth,” which tells the story of Father Jerzy Popieluszko, the Roman Catholic priest martyred by the Polish Communists for advocating freedom of religion and political reform. By serving as chaplain to the fledging Solidarity Movement, Fr. Jerzy helped to crystalize the anti-communist sentiment in his native Poland. His death sparked a national nonviolent reform movement that eventually dealt a mortal blow to communism’s rule of terror.
Fr. Jerzy’s life stands as a testament to the strength of conviction and the courage of conscience.
The film’s Executive Producer, Gary Chartrand, will speak about the film and its importance. Mr. Maciej Pisarski, Deputy Chief of Mission at the Polish Embassy, will also attend and speak. Senators Rubio (R-FL) and Mikulski (D-MD) have also been invited.
Register for this exclusive screening here.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the building of the International Museum on Communism.
