The Parish School of Religion will be starting once again in September! All children who do not attend Catholic schools should be enrolled in this program.

When guests arrive, God arrives!
In Poland, where many of our original and current parishioners came from, they say "When guests arrive, God arrives" this is the rule by which we strive to live as a growing Catholic parish community with open doors and minds. We cherish our Polish roots, while celebrating diversity of all who enter. All really are welcome at St. Stanislaus and all are needed to spread the Good News of God's unconditional love. On this website you can find out what is happening in our Parish in coming days and weeks, familiarize yourself with our story, read our Parish bulletin, watch recent Sunday homilies or read Fr. Marek's most recent monthly reflection. Make yourself at home, and come back often!
We proudly profess Catholic faith and celebrate Catholic sacraments, but we are no longer a part of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, nor do we belong to the institutional Roman Catholic Church. On March 15, 2012 Judge Bryan L. Hettenbach issued a ruling in which he affirmed St. Stanislaus' ownership of its property, thus denying the claims of the Archdiocese. On February 13, 2013 the Archdiocese of St. Louis and St. Stanislaus issued a joint press release in which a settlement was announced that ended, once and for all, legal disputes between these two parties. The Archdiocese dismissed its appeal and the judgment of the trial court from March 15, 2012 is now final.
Our church and grounds are owned by the parishioners and we do not receive any funds from any source other than through individual donations and fundraisers. Consider supporting our Parish and its many ministries - all donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
