In Memory of Rev. Msgr. Balthasar ‘Balty’ Janacek (1926 – 2007)

Our former Executive Director
For 40 years, he put the serving in preserving his beloved Missions.

‘Balty’ was absolutely dedicated to making sure that the Missions stay alive as active churches and parishes—as they have been since their founding centuries ago. Thanks to his wisdom, vision, and just plain hard work, they are thriving, living historical treasures that continue to inspire us all today.
