Second Saturday
"The Polish War "
with Tim Younkman

  Simmering ill-will between two factions of parishioners in the St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic parish erupted into violence in the days following Ash Wednesday 1896 causing the Bishop and eventually the Pope to close down the church and school for nearly two years.  Men and women from both factions fought each other on a continuing basis, ousting two pastors in the process, until a precarious truce was established in 1898.  It wasn’t until 1906, with the organization of St. Hyacinth Parish, that the war ended, though not the ill-feelings. 

   “The Polish War” delves into the details of one of the most bizarre events in Michigan history, and gives insight into the ill-will that survives to this day!
