Victoria’s Polish Community unites with Poles around the world and in their homeland to remember those whose brilliance was cut short because of the Smolensk air crash and honour the beatification of its greatest son.

On Tuesday 3 May, Tuesday 3 May 2011, the Polish Community in Victoria and many friends of Poland will meet at the Hotel Windsor to celebrate the Polish Constitution of 3 May 1791 with guest of honour and speaker, Michael Jonathan Thwaites, Australian Ambassador to the Republic of Poland from 1994 – 1998.

Father Gregory Jordan SJ will lead a tribute to John Paul II. Pope John Paul II was a principal architect of the modern world, credited by many with the central role in the dispersal of a nuclear-armed Soviet empire in 1989.

“The celebration of Polish Constitution of 1791, the first in Europe and the second in the World, is the perfect opportunity to come together and acknowledge Poland’s high and lows as we will this year” said Christopher Lancucki President of the Polish Community Council of Victoria. “It is a great occasion for all Victorian Poles, their descendants and friends to take some time to remember.”
