Katecheci parafii w Sokołowie Małopolskim na początku XX wieku (1900-1920)
In the two first decades of the 20th century, 5 regular catechists worked in the St John Baptism Parish of Sokołów Małopolski: the Rev. Wojciech Karaś (1900-1902), the Rev. Józef Szpila (1903--1904), the Rev. Leopold Augustyn (1904-1907), the Rev. Michał Klajewicz (1909-1911) and the Rev. Stanisław Woźny (1912-1920). Those priests mainly taught religion in the five-grade coeducational school in Sokołów Małopolski, the school which was divided into a female and male one in 1913. Apart from this, they helped parish priests with pastoral work. At that time the parish priests were the Rev. Franciszek Stankiewicz (1898-1916), the Rev. Wojciech Blajer (1916) and the Rev. Leon Szado (1916-1934). The article presents biographical entries of the above-mentioned catechists. Two of them, the Rev. Michał Klajewicz and the Rev.
