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.

Four Eagle Award Banquet and Silent Auction
The Four Eagle
event is celebrated in order to give recognition to
individuals or groups who have demonstrated outstanding
commitment to the Saint Stanislaus community.
It is also
one of the major fundraisers for our parish. These funds
are raised to support the continued advancement of the
spiritual, educational, and cultural mission of this shrine
parish. We have so much to be thankful for and know so
many in need.
The Four Eagle Award, named after the
legendary four eagles that protected the body of the martyred
Stanislaus, is bestowed upon individuals or organizations that
have been especially helpful in furthering the mission of the
Saint Stanislaus community. This will be our Ninth Annual
Four Eagle Award Celebration.
Past recipients include Bishop Anthony M. Pilla; Ben S.
Stefanski II; Mayor Jane Campbell; the Sisters of the Holy
Family of Nazareth; the Third District Cleveland Police; the
Franciscan Friars; the neighborhood family-owned funeral
homes; the DiGeronimo and Kurtz Families; Katherine Geis and her son, Fred Geis; and the St. Stanislaus Alumni Association.
This is one of the greatest events our parish continues
to have to not only assist in fundraising but, also, to
honor someone who has done an outstanding service to
our community. Read about the history of this banquet.
