Fr. William Gulas St. Stanislaus Schedule of Services Parish Ministries Pastoral Staff

The Shrine Church of Saint Stanislaus in Cleveland, Ohio became a center of attention recently as people gathered to pray for Pope John Paul II.

Not only is Saint Stanislaus the mother church of Cleveland Polonia, but also it is the first church in the U.S. where the pope celebrated Mass during a visit in 1969 as Cardinal Archbishop Karol Wojtyla.

Relic of St. Stanislaus

At that time, he also presented the church with a relic of Saint Stanislaus, who is also a past bishop of Krakow.

Many parishioners remember his visit, and he has long been a source of deep pride for the Polish people.
