Welcome Fr. Charles Ravert!
If you have seen a gunmetal Dodge Charger parked outside of the Parish Center these last few days, you’ve laid eyes on the vehicle that belongs to the newest member of the St. Stanislaus Parish family, Fr. Charles Ravert! Fr. Charles hails from Philadelphia, where he grew up in nearby Manayunk and comes to us from St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Bensalem — yes the same parish that Fr. Forlano, our former Parochial Vicar is now pastor. Fr. Charles is excited about his new role and looks forward to supporting all aspects of the parish, particularly the vibrant Spanish community and our young families and children. Welcome Fr. Charles!

A Man of His Word: A Documentary of Pope Francis
In his most recent column Archbishop Chaput writes, “I’ve always loved the movies. As a child, I dreamed of directing films. Obviously that didn’t work out. Nonetheless, I’ve seen hundreds of them. But one of the most striking films I remember is Wings of Desire (1987), the story of an angel in Berlin who chooses to become mortal to experience human love.
Wings was directed and co-written by the German filmmaker Wim Wenders, a master of film drama and an accomplished documentarian. Much of Wenders’ work is marked by a Christian-inspired spirituality; he and his wife are candid about their belief in God; and in past interviews he’s noted that his life and work have been ‘profoundly formed by growing up in a Catholic family.’ Impressed by the encyclical Laudato Si on the environment, and encouraged by a priest friend, Wenders embarked on a documentary of Pope Francis’ papal ministry and thought. The result – A Man of His Word – will be in theaters on May 18 from Focus Features.”
