RESURRECTIONISTS

DSC_0010 j

Bogdan Janski: 1807-1840 a Polish economist, who after a dramatic personal conversion envisioned a community that would later evolve, after his death, into the Congregation of the Resurrection. A charismatic personality, Janski attracted several followers, most notably Peter Semenenko and Jerome Kajsiewicz, and together they established a common life in Paris on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 1836.

Peter Semenenko: 1814-1886 a Belarusian, who after living in the Paris community, went to Rome together with Jerome Kajsiewicz to study for priestly ordination. Following ordination in 1837, Semenenko distinguished himself as a spiritual director and consultant to the Vatican. He also composed the first Rule for the Congregation of the Resurrection.

Jerome Kajsiewicz: 1812-1873 a Lithuanian, served as Superior General of the Congregation in its formative years. A dynamic preacher and writer, Kajsiewicz was instrumental in initiating the Congregation’s missionary activities and outreach.
