Slovakia - June 2019 - On June 1 in the Tatra Mountains there was the ceremony of installation and blessing of a memorial plaque for a young Salesian, Fr Boleslaw Rozmus, who died in 1996 while leading a group of students to this area. In addition to several representatives from Slovakia and Poland, there were also representatives of the formation houses of the novitiate of Slovakia and of the Krakow theologate, with the director of the novitiate, Fr Peter Timko, and the Provincial of Krakow (PLS), Fr Adam Parszywka. The Eucharist was presided over by the Councilor for Central and Northern Europe Region, Fr Tadeusz Rozmus, older brother of Fr Boleslaw. For 23 years Fr Boleslaw's past pupils have been meeting regularly every year on the first Sunday of October in the Tatra Mountains and celebrate a Mass in his memory in the Chocholowska Valley. In the memorial cemetery of Strbske Pleso there are currently two Salesian tombstones: Fr Boleslaw's and a novice from the Czech Republic, who also died in the mountains in 2007.
