4. Founded Our Lady of Gostyn, Downers Grove IL.
He was appointed pastor of Immaculate Conception B.V.M. Church  and stayed their till his death.
He was thoroughly dedicated to the welfare of his parish, the Polish Roman Catholic Union, and independent Poland, and the civic and social progress of Poles in America.

Fr. Wojtalewicz had helped thousands of workers as emigrants, to adjust themselves to American life and had been their mediator in industrial disputes.

The Polish Daily News in reporting his death said, "The venerable priest did not  limit his work to the spiritual care of his people, but was a leader in social and national affairs for the Polish people, who placed complete trust in him. His vigorous and active patriotism, his sacrifices and unending work for the Polish resulted in the fact that the name of Wojtalewicz became a synonym in Chicago for the love of Poland and Polish People".
