Fr. RobertReverend Robert Marchwiany (2012-present)

Fr Robert  Marchwiany became the pastor of St Florian Parish on July 1, 2012.  He came to us from St Luke’s Parish in River Forest where he was associate pastor for two years.  Before his tenure at St. Luke’s, Fr. Robert was associate pastor of St. Albert the Great Parish in Burbank.   His first assignment was at  St. Louise de Marillac in Lagrange Park.

Father Robert was born and raised in Poland. His decision to become a priest occurred when he got involved with a youth group in high school while growing up in Poland.  “We wanted to deepen our sense of Christianity and what being Christian meant for us at the time,” he recalled. “That’s when I realized I wanted to be dedicated to serving people.” While he was attending seminary, Bishop Thad Jakubowski visited and asked if any of the students would consider coming to Chicago. “At first I wasn’t sure it was a good idea,” Fr. Robert said. “There was no guarantee that I would complete the program. It is another country, another culture.”  Upon Arriving, Fr. Robert found the experience rewarding. . “There is a big value of seeing many kinds of people with the same faith,” he said. “You don’t find that in Poland.” (Catholic New World, March, 2003)
