Welcome to St. Stanislaus
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.

O, Come, Let Us Adore Him! During this Advent Season … say a special prayer and thank you to St. Francis of Assisi for beginning the tradition of the Christmas Crèche/Nativity Devotion in 1223 in Greccio, Italy. With the help of friends, Francis arranged to have a nativity built upon which the Christmas Mass would be said. Serving as the deacon for the Christmas Midnight Mass, Francis preached about the greatest and most amazing gift that God could give us – the gift of His Son, the gift of God becoming a child for our sake, the gift of God’s love. Francis reminded the attendees about the poverty, the lowliness, the humility of the Christ Child. Oral tradition maintains that the villagers dressed in costumes and brought live animals for the event. The Lord is born for us! As we ponder, celebrate and rejoice in this great mystery, let us be filled with the Light of Christ. Christmas blessings on each of you and those you hold dear. As we remember the holy day and the holy season of Christmas, please take the time to thank St. Francis of Assisi for spreading this Crèche tradition throughout the world. The Living Word Fraternity of the Secular Franciscan Order is a multi-parish fraternity, which meets at St. Stanislaus monthly on the second Sunday.
