Come on a journey with Angela Sealana to Czestochowa, TX. This small but important Polish Texas town is about an hour and fifteen minutes southeast of San Antonio. The town’s Catholic residents have lives centered around the parish church, which is named Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
During our journey, you will:
- Hear the story of a unique Polish Texas town & church, born from tragedy
- Learn about the significance of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s birth
- Be inspired and encouraged in your daily life – and maybe inspired to take a visit out to Czestochowa, Texas!
