    Mary’s Visit to Our Shrine Church
    The peregrination of the “icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Defense of Life” made a stop on its journey around the world here at the Shrine Church of St. Stanislaus. This icon, written last Summer in Czestochowa, has travelled over 40,000 miles on its journey around the world.

    The icon is making a world-wide tour in an attempt to inspire the faithful of both the Catholic and Orthodox faiths to pray for and support the right to life, from conception to natural death, and everything in between!

    The icon began this important campaign in 2012 when it was written in Czestochowa, Poland, then blessed by touching the original icon, and then sent on its journey beginning in Vladivostok, Russia, near the Pacific Ocean. This event has received the support of both 'lungs' of Christendom, both Catholic and Orthodox, and has received the approval of the hierarchies of both.

    The icon's only stop in the Cleveland area was ot our Shrine Church of St. Stanislaus. It is truly respectful of our parish community as well as the entire northern Ohio Polish community that we were honored by a stop here on its journey.
