We want you to know that St Stanislaus is here to help if you now find yourself in need.
With a long history of social ministry outreach, parishioners here have proven that we know how to help others. But now could be the time to reach out for yourself, if this unprecedented crisis has taken your income and left you with growing bills.
Please call Sister Barbara at 215.855.3133, ext. 115, for confidential conversation and assistance.

Walking Rosary and Chaplet for Peace

Please join the Divine Mercy Cenacle on Tuesday evenings for a walking Rosary and Chaplet of Divine Mercy.  As our country is recovering from the pandemic and experiencing division and unrest, we are living in difficult times. St. Padre Pio said, “The Rosary is the ‘weapon’ for these times.” Our prayers are needed to bring physical and social healing. We will be praying for an end to division in our country and for peace and healing.  We will meet outside in the parking lot by the Adoration Chapel at 7pm (we will not meet if it is raining).  All CDC guidelines will be followed. Please wear a mask and we will follow social distancing.

Pope Francis offers prayer to Virgin Mary for protection:

O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee,
joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us,
through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen.

We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

Please note: there is another scam going around via email soliciting gift cards, or scrip, purchases for Fr. Sean.  Fr. Sean, Fr. Charles, and the Parish Center Staff will never email requests of any kind for gift card or scrip purchase. The email may look official, but it is not! Please be aware.
