Safe Environment Training
Saint Stanislaus Parish will be hosting a Protecting God’s Children/Safe Environment training session Sunday, October 23, at 7 pm in the Parish Center Lobby Meeting Room. This is a 2 1/2 hour class. This class will be in English. Walk-ins are accepted.
Charismatic Prayer Group
On Wednesday, October 26, we’ll meet at 1 pm in the Parish Center Chapel. PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE. There will only be one meeting this month. Luke 18:8 says, “When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?” We have a lot to pray for today – and we need an AWE about our faith to transcend our country’s culture. Come and join with like-minded people of faith to pray, praise, and discuss the scriptures; it will help reinforce you, and give you hope!

Family and friends of the deceased are invited to join us for this special Mass. There will be a reception of fellowship following the Mass to give families an opportunity to meet others who have lost loved ones this year.

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.
