Pastoral Staff



Father Roman Pasieczny
Pastor

My name is Fr. Roman Pasieczny. I am very happy to greet all of you as the new Pastor of St. Lawrence Parish. I would like to briefly share a few facts about my background with you.

I was born and raised in a small village in southeast Poland called Tarnawatka. I attended Seminary at the Catholic University of Lublin and was ordained to the Priesthood in 1980. I came to the Archdiocese of Detroit in 1994. During my process of Incardination, I served at the following parishes: St. Cunegunda, St. Stephen, St. Louis the King, St. Bartholomew, St. Joan of Arc and St. Isidore. I was named Pastor of St. Martin de Porres in 2000. I also became a citizen of the United States in 2000.

It is exciting and challenging to serve multi-cultural communities in the Archdiocese of Detroit. I am also very proud of my Polish heritage.

I look forward to working with and ministering to all of you. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the assistance of Fr. Sal, the Parish Staff, your prayers and patience, I will make a sincere effort to continue the hard work that keeps St. Lawrence the vibrant parish that it is. I ask for your prayers and I promise you mine. May the Blessed Virgin Mary keep us close to her Immaculate Heart.

Father Salvatore Palazzolo
Associate Pastor


The Lord be with you!  My name is Father Salvatore Joseph Palazzolo (Fr. Sal) and I am thrilled to be here at St. Lawrence with you as your new associate pastor.  This is my very first priestly assignment as I was just ordained this past May at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral for the Archdiocese of Detroit.  I spent this last year serving as a deacon at St. Michael in Livonia, while finishing my last year of seminary at Sacred Heart.  I am very familiar with the area because St. Isidore in Macomb Township is my home parish.
