Poland's Top Military Chaplains Among Those Killed in 10 April Crash

The Canadian Forces Chaplaincy circulated a notice this week that the Polish military's three top military chaplains were among the Polish dignitaries killed in the 10 April plane crash at Smolensk.

The three included Chief Military Roman Catholic Chaplain Bishop Maj. Gen. Tadeusz Płoski, age 54, a distinguished canon lawyer. A memorial for him can be found here.

Chief Military Orthodox Catholic Chaplain Bishop Brig. Gen. Mirosław Miron Chodakowski held a PhD in Theology and was the Orthodox Ordinary (Field Bishop) of the Polish Army. His biography can be viewed here.

Also killed was Col. Adam Pilch, Deputy Chief Military Evangelical Chaplain, a Lutheran pastor.

As well, there were four non-military clergy, all Roman Catholic priests, among the 96 persons killed.

Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord, and may light perpetual shine upon them.
