The Polish American Congress sent its mobile registration unit to the Brooklyn-Queens border section of Ridgewood where St. Matthias Church serves the interests of Polish Catholics living in Ridgewood and Glendale.
Father Kubrak concelebrated Sunday morning mass at St. Matthias and led his church members to meet with the Congress enrollers waiting for them outside.
There’s good reason why Rev. Kubrak is so civic-minded. More than a decade ago, he was on the executive board of the Downstate N.Y. Congress and left that position after he decided to enter the seminary and study for the priesthood.
“He’s as much a leader today as he was then,” said Frank Milewski, president of the New York Congress.
St. Matthias Church is located at 58-15 Catalpa Avenue in the Ridgewood section of Queens.
