Fr. Damian Mazurkiewicz, SJ – I was born in 1982 and raised near Opole (south-west Poland). After finishing High School I joined the Jesuits in 2000. I studied philosophy in Kraków for three years, achieving my BA. From 2005 to 2007 I worked as a religion teacher at Nativity Mission Center middle school in New York. After that, I came back to Poland to study theology in Warsaw and in Bratislava (Slovakia) for one semester. During philosophical and theological studies I was involved in campus ministry where I ran liturgical, biblical and prayer groups.
I was ordained a deacon in 2010 and ordained a priest in 2011. After ordination I was sent to work in youth ministry in Kraków. I was responsible for the youth retreat program. I also ran the local group of youth movement “Magis”. This year I organized Ignatian Youth Days in Stara Wieś. This is a gathering of young people from Jesuit parishes in Poland. [/dropshadowbox]
