Parish Mission Statement

We, the members of St. Stanislaus Church, are the people of God, empowered by the sacraments to become a servant community. In the midst of our second century of service, we celebrate our Polish heritage, our Christian spirit, and the prayerful devotion of our people. Our mission is to share the richness of our community life with all that seek a Christian home. Our life and mission is centered on worship, evangelization, education and community. In gratitude to Almighty God, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, with the intercession of all the Saints in Christ, may our vision come to light.

We hope and pray that if we all work together through our ministries, we can achieve harmony and prosperity for our church, school and neighborhood.
