About Us

The Father Walter Ciszek Prayer League is the official organization for the promotion of the cause of canonization of Father Walter Ciszek, S.J. Originally established and approved by the Most Rev. Michael Dudick, bishop of the Byzantine Eparchy of Passaic (now deceased), the Father Walter Ciszek Prayer League works for the promotion of the cause through prayers and the living out of Father Walter's spiritual message of the acceptance of the Will of God in vibrant faith. The process of the cause has been officially transferred to the control of the Diocese of Allentown, PA and is under the auspices of Most Rev. Alfred A. Schlert, Bishop of the Diocese of Allentown, who appointed Rev. Eugene Ritz as co-postulator.
