It’s a massive feat to just to climb North America’s highest mountain, but even rarer to celebrate Mass on the 20,320 foot peak. In fact, one local Alaskan historian doesn’t recall it ever happening before July 3, when three childhood friends from Poland summited the famed Mt. McKinley. Father Krzyaztof Grzybowski and his brother Father Robert Grzybowski celebrated a Mass with their childhood friend Adrian Przyluski attending. In a letter to the Catholic Anchor, Father Richard Tero, pastor of Sacred Heart Church in Seward and local church historian in the Archdiocese of Anchorage said he believes the Mass might be the first on the top of North America’s highest peak.
