Fr. Cyprian Adamski, OFM Conv., son of Bartholomew and Mary (Zagorskich) Adamski, was born on October 18, 1883, in Zarszyan, Poland. His early education and secondary training was in Poland. At the age of 21 Fr. Cyprian came to America and at Elmhurst, NY, he petitioned the Minister Provincial for acceptance into the Conventual Franciscans. He was then sent to Lwow, Poland where he completed his Novitiate and professed his simple vows on November 18, 1904. Following studies, his ordination to the priesthood took place on July 4, 1909, in Cracow, Poland. After his ordination Fr. Cyprian returned to the United States and labored in the parochial apostolate. For five years he assisted at Corpus Christi Parish, Buffalo, NY. In 1914 he was appointed Pastor of St. Stanislaus Church, Chelsea, MA where he added bell towers, purchased a building for a convent, constructed a new fourteen classroom school, and liquidated the parish debt. Fr. Cyprian was also active in civic movements. Through his efforts a monument in memory of General Casimir Pulaski was erected in the center of Chelsea. After a brief illness Fr. Cyprian's earthly journey came to an end on May 31, 1939, in the 55th year of his age, the 35th of his profession and the 30th of his priesthood. The Liturgy of Christian Burial was celebrated in St. Stanislaus Church, Chelsea, in the presence of a number of religious and diocesan priest, church dignitaries, and city and State representatives. The mortal remains of Fr. Cyprian were laid to rest in the Holy Cross Cemetery, Malden, MA. In gratitude for his profound interest in civic affairs, the State Legislature passed a bill of November 18, 1957 posthumously naming a new highway that connected the Mystic River with the State Highway "The Father Cyprian Adamski Express Highway."
