In today’s episode father Łukasz talks to friar Fabian Stanisz OP – a minor sacristan from the biggest Polish Dominican monastery, in Krakow.

Brother Fabian is one of those Dominicans, who lives and works in the monastery without receiving the holy orders. Known for his passion for architecture and the equipment found in the monastery of Holy Trinity, Fabian is a fan of music and poetry, and… a dedicated observer of the day-to-day life on the streets of Krakow, where he can be often found with a camera in his hand.

Friar Fabian started his music education in Częstochowa. In the years 1999-2001 he studied organs at the Academy of Music in Łódź and then the Academy of Music in Gdańsk. Before joining the monastery, he served as an organist in the Basilica of St. Nicolas in Gdańsk. Since 2007, as a Dominican, he’s served as a sacristan in a few different Dominican churches.

An encounter. Crisp thoughts. Inspirations. Teatime conversations (coffee would be quite fitting as well), chats about people and ideas that you as the friends of the Dominican Liturgical Center may find intriguing: Where does the “Polish Dominican music” come from?, What kind of visual art should we employ in our churches?, Who would study liturgy?, What does it feel like to be a catechumen in Poland?

These and many other topics will be the subject of our new video series, “Zdolni” (a pun too hard to translate). Check our YouTube channel or Facebook page on Thursdays to follow your host, Fr. Lukasz Misko, OP, and his guests.
