Polish Village reacts to Pope John Paul II's sainthood

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Toledo's Polish Village is extremely proud, as Pope Francis has cleared the way for Pope John Paul II to become a saint.

Deacon Gerald Ignatowski with St. Adalbert Parish says ever since Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) became the head of the Catholic Church in 1978, he's been a source of pride for Toledo Polonia, people of Polish decent here in the Glass City.

"The first Polish pope, and everything he had done through his papacy was just amazing," the deacon said. "He reached out to everybody, and being a Polish parish, it was a great time in our lives."
