June 4: 25th Annual Forest Park Hat Luncheon
For the first time ever, St. Stanislaus is going to participate in the Annual Forest Park Hat Luncheon. We are going to have one or two “themed” tables for the luncheon depending on how many people from our Parish wish to participate. Men and Women are invited to participate wearing hats that honor our Polish Heritage in colors of red and white. The cost for the luncheon is $125.00 per person with approximately $60.00 being tax deductible. Please contact Debby Gray or Jeannette Harris should you be interested in joining in the fun! More information to follow as the date draws near!

On this June Sunday, following the 9:00 a.m. Mass (the only Mass on that day) we will have a procession with the Most Holy Sacrament around the streets of our neighborhood, professing our faith and singing Eucharistic hymns at four altars. After Mass and Procession we will enjoy a BBQ potluck luncheon - please contact Donna Nachefski at 314-323-6415 if you are able to bring a dish or two.
