It was made to celebrate 18th anniversary of pontificate and commemorate his ordination to the priesthood on Wawel Hill – a place which was essential for Karol Wojtyła’s childhood, youth and life as a priest. In the casting ceremony, among others, took part: Zdzisław Sochacki – parish priest of Royal Cathedral in Cracow and Andrzej Bochniak – chief of Wawel bell ringers. We would like to thank everyone who decided to join us in this unique ceremony. Click for more on the bell’s history and technical details.
