Jak powstało Kolegium Miłosierdzia Bożego ?


The Chaplaincy Priest, Father Stanisław Bełch, was the chaplain of Polish Army in France and England and founder of the “Veritas” Publishing House. He also initiated the founding of the girls’ school in Pitsford and the boys’ school in Hereford. The former under the auspices of the Sisters of Nazareth and the latter under the Marian Fathers.



In 1948 Father Stanisław Bełch, who at that time was residing in the United States, met Father Provincial of the Congregation of Marian Fathers. In his memoirs, written three months before his death, stated inter alia: ”…In 1948 I was staying in the USA. Having analysed various options I chose the Marian Fathers. ( Father Bełch expected the Marian Fathers to open boys’ school in England- annotation). Their Provincial came to me to New York. He stayed at my house. We spend a lot of time talking. Eventually, at about three o’clock in the morning he said: “ You convinced me Father, but who will take care of it?” I put forward Father Jarzębowski, residing in Mexico then. He called him a soulful idealist. I retorted that his former students from Warsaw praised him as a teacher. He answered that I managed to convince him, but told me to convince Father General of the Marian Congregation in Rome as well. I wrote to him. He agreed. I had the following plan of realisation: One Prelate (I cannot recall his name) who lived in the same house as me, was authorised by Father Provincial to go to England to buy a property suitable for a school. I gave him instructions what to do. Together with a Vicar from Śląsk they bought a house in Hereford”… "... See J. Bełch, Ks.Stanisław Franciszek Bełch,"Premislia Cristiana 1990/91,p.380., After Ks. Adam Romejko, Duszpasterstwo polonijne w Wielkiej Brytanii, Tuchów,2001, p.214 przp.927


In February 1950 a Marian Father Tomasz Reginek and the Diocesan Father Jan Brandys bought a Convent in Lower Bullingham, Hereford from the Sisters of Mercy. In July 1950 Father Józef Jarzębowski and Father Paweł Jasiński came to Hereford. The construction works were supervised by Father Brandys. In September 1951 educational institution for boys was opened. Bishop Gawlina donated £409 pounds. In 1953 there were 80 boys in this school. The Hereford place gradually became to crowded to accommodate all the applicants. Father Jarzębowski started looking for a new place for the school.
