On This Day: Poland appoints archbishop

Karol Wojtyla is appointed archbishop of Kraków, Poland On This Day in 1964. He would later serve as Pope John Paul II from 16 October 1978 until he passed on 2 April 2005. He be the first Pope from Poland 

 

On This Day is a prompt I started this month to further explore historical events. I will make every effort to keep events localized to that of my research or research I am conducting for others. However, from time to time, it will simply be a subject that captured my attention. Some posts will be brief while others may be more detailed.
