Bishop Adam Musialek is the third bishop of the Diocese of De Aar and is a member of the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart.  He was born and educated in Poland and holds a Master in Theology degree through the Papal University in Krakow, and licentiate in Interreligious Dialogue from Wyszynski University in Warsaw. He came to South Africa over twenty years ago, where he served in several posts in the Diocese of De Aar before being appointed Bishop of De Aar in July 2009. Bishop Musialek also serves as an Apostolic Administrator of the Aliwal Diocese, a position he took up in 2017. Beyond all his pastoral activities as a priest and later as bishop, social participation was and is of the greatest importance to him, such as taking care of the natural environment and the academic uplifting of the less privileged.
