2021 is the year of the 120th anniversary of birth and the 40th anniversary of the death, as well as the beatification of Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński. Therefore, 2021 was designated the year of the Primate of the Millennium. On this occasion, the PGE Foundation became involved in projects in the field of culture and art, commemorating the person of the Cardinal.
“By supporting exhibitions, concerts, and film productions, we contribute to the dissemination of knowledge about Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński, especially among the younger generation. In this way, the PGE Group pays tribute to the outstanding figure of the Primate of the Millennium,” says Wojciech Dąbrowski, president of the management board of PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna.
One of the initiatives in which the PGE Foundation joined was the project “Social Crusade of Love – the heritage of Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński”, which was organized, among others, in Prudnik, the site of the Primate’s prison in 1954-1955. The project aimed to disseminate knowledge about the life and values presented by the Primate of the Millennium. The project includes, among others, planting cardinal beech trees in the Opolskie Voivodeship, preparing the project of Aleja Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński on Klasztorna Góra in Prudnik, and organizing a concert.
The PGE Foundation also supported the painting exhibition entitled “Independent – Sovereign – in tribute to the Primate of the Millennium Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński”, organized at the Męciński Palace in Działoszyn.
