The creation of the Faculty of Theology in Szczecin has deep justification not only in the history of the Church in the Western Pomerania, but also in contemporary rights of the Church, the University and the region. For a long time, especially since the creation of a metropolitan church involving Western Pomerania and the land Lubuska in 1992 and in particular, the entry into the Faculty of Theology of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, theological seminars in Szczecin, Koszalin and Paradyż in 1998, the formation of the Faculty of Theology , University of Szczecin was highly anticipated. The direct work of faculty appointment began in 2000 and was successful on August 2003. The decree founded the department, issued by the Congregation for Catholic Education.The process of creation of the Faculty of Theology has a specific process. The first step is to prepare all documentation and obtaining a favorable decision of the Holy See. In our case it was the most difficult stage, because the Congrgation decided to cease for some time the creation of theological faculties in Poland. The personal conviction of Pope John Paul II, in early 2003, led to a positive resolution. Work on the creation of faculty focused on the University and Ministry of National Education and Sport. Completion of the joint took place on 9 January 2004 signing of the Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Poland and the Polish Episcopal Conference on the establishment and operation of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Szczecin. Five years of operation of the department fully confirms the validity of its arguments against the creation. Here are the words of John Paul II said on January 27, 2004 to the University mission, the Faculty of Theology and to the city authorities:I think that needs to be held at the Polish region of the Faculty of Theology was strong supported by organizational strctures and scientific potential of the University. I am confident that this will make young people from Szczecin and the entire north –western Poland will have greater opportunities to acquire philosophical and theological knowledge. (...) Let scientific cooperation, creative dialogue, and even the scientific disputes bring the fruit of the truth and let the development of these be comprehensive for those who wish to draw from a source of knowledge and wisdom
