In connection with celebrations of the anniversary of the Baptism of Poland (966) and the address of the Polish bishops to German bishops (1965), state and party authorities launched in mid-1966 a propaganda campaign directed to various social groups, particularly the rural community. An interesting element of this campaign was that officers of the Polish Army were engaged in it, and proved fairly successful in their attempts to establish contacts with clergy of the lower ranks. The article presents how the drive proceeded and its results. The study is based on surviving party documents, produced mainly by the party units of the Wrocław region.
