Please join us on October 5 at 7 pm to pray the Rosary for peace in the world. The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated on October 7. In 1883, Pope Leo XIII officially dedicated the month of October to the Holy Rosary. Our sacramental PREP students and other groups in the parish will help us to form a Living Rosary at a special prayer service on October 5. It would be great to fill the church as we pray to our Blessed Mother for peace and hope for our troubled world. ALL are welcome!
Charismatic Prayer Group
This group meets at 1 pm on the 3rd Wednesday and at 7 pm on the 4th Tuesday of the month, September through June. We gather to praise the Lord, using the gifts He’s given us. We sing, praise and pray for the Church, our nation, and our own needs. Frequently after our meetings we will pray over individuals requesting that.
Divine Mercy Chaplet for the Sick and Dying
“At the hour of their death, I defend as My own glory every soul that will say this chaplet; or when others say it for a dying person, the pardon is the same. When this chaplet is said by the bedside of a dying person, God’s anger is placated, unfathomable mercy envelops the soul, and the very depths of My tender mercy are moved for the sake of the sorrowful Passion of My Son.” (Diary of St. Faustina #811)
If you would like members of the Saint Stanislaus Divine Mercy Cenacle to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for a loved one who is sick or dying please contact Pat Shovlin at 215.896.0871 or Eileen McKeron at 215.527.0269. Members of the Cenacle are available to come and pray the Chaplet at the bedside of your loved one.
Forty Hours Devotion
The Forty Hours Devotion is the solemn exposition of the Blessed Sacrament extending over three days in honor of the forty hours the body of Christ is believed to have rested in the tomb. St. John Neumann, fourth bishop of Philadelphia, was the first to hold the devotion in America. At St. Stanislaus Parish, Forty Hours Devotion usually takes place around the feast day of our patron, St. Stanislaus Kostka, November 13. Forty Hours Devotion takes place in the Main Church and the Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel is closed for that period of time.
Legion of Mary
This is an international organization for the sanctification of its members by prayer and cooperation in the work of the Church. The Legion of Mary meets on Thursday afternoons at 1:45 pm in the Parish Center.
Miraculous Medal Novena
Perpetual Novena in honor of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal every Saturday after the 8 am Mass in the Church. The Miraculous Medal was manifested to Saint Catherine Laboure in Paris, France, in the year 1830. Saint Catherine’s description of the apparition of Our Lady makes it clear that the medal originated with the Mother of God herself.
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration takes place in the St. Katharine Drexel Adoration Chapel. For more information please see the separate tab “Perpetual Adoration” under the Devotions heading.
The prayer needs of our parishioners are shared with this group, who communicate via an email and phone chain to pray daily for the intentions specifically requested. To place someone on the prayer line, please call Karen Smith at the Parish Center, 215.855.3133.
Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet
The Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet are prayed after the 8 am daily Mass Monday through Saturday.
