LET'S PLAN FOR LENT:
In a blink of the eye, the solemn season of LENT will be upon us. ASH WEDNESDAY will be February 14 of this year. Again this year, we will have available a daily spiritual reading booklet, THE PATH TO PEACE.
Each day of Lent will have a short reflection and prayer. Many
people find the booklet very useful as a Lenten guide. The books
are available in the Church vestibule. St. Stan's and our
partnered parish of Holy Trinity will co-sponsor a series of four SIMPLE SUPPERS.
The supper schedule and details can be found on page three of the
February 4 bulletin. Access can be had by clicking on the
February 4 bulletin at the top left of this page. In
addition, THE STATIONS OF THE CROSS
will prayed in Church each Wednesday at 2:00 PM with
Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament beginning on Wednesday, February
21. THE SEASON OF LENT
can be a truly envigorating opportunity to face our failings and
inconsistencies and be renewed in the lifegiving and lovegiving
power of God's redeeming love. But in order to reach that level -
LET US PLAN TO DO SO!!!
LOOK FORWARD TO HOLY WEEK: The Holiest Days of the year are fast approaching. The Partnered Parishes
of St. Stanislaus and Holy Trinity will be celebrating these holiest of
days together. This will allow for greater particiation of
all members of both parishes giving better witness to our Faith
in Jesus. For a complete Holy Week schedule, please click
here: Holy Week 2018 Schedule. For a complete explanation as to "why" this is being done, Please click here: Holy Week Information.
THE FISH/PIEROGI DINNERS: We extend our MOST SINCERE "THANKS" to
all our faithful dinner customers, and our new customers this season,
who patronized our very popular Lenten dinners. Our first two
dinners had an attendance of 600 patrons and our final dinner had an
attendance of 640 patrons. This is a very good average for a
dinner that is served for just three hours. All our faithful
volunteers will take a break and will be back to serve you at the next
season of Lent. We wish you a blessed Holy Week and Easter.
"ANNUAL SPRING FLING" The parish Holy Name Society will host their "Annual Val V. Jaskiewicz and Ron Bukoski Spring Fling" on Sunday, April 15
from 1:00 to 5:00 PM in the Parish Hall at 522 East 13 Street.Tickets

contedmporary Church. In order that you may enrich your

FLOWER FUND: In order to be able to provide fresh flowers and seasonal decorations or the interior of the church, a "FLOWER FUND"
was established in the parish. We thank those who, over the
years, have contributed towards the fund. Some have
designated a gift as a "memorial" and others have
made a "donation" toward the fund. For an
updated list of memorials and gifts, please click

NOW THIS IS EXCITING - PARISH SCRIP PROGRAM!
The parish scrip prgram began in November 2006. As we begin 2012,
the program has raised $21,062.17!
The program is now being STREAMLINED. We will
carry several CASH AND CARRY CARDS
each week. If you would
like to special order other cards, you may do so the last weekend of
the month. The cards would then be ready for pickup the following
weekend. The program involves "gift
cards" or "cash
cards". Anyone who has any interest in St. Stan's
Parish can help us. You simply purchase a card from the parish
and pay for it with cash or a check. The card can then be used as
you please for the business from which the card was purchased OR
give them as gifts
for someone else. The parish receives back a percentage of the
value of the card - AND THAT IS HOW WE MAKE A PROFIT!
Cards from franchised businesses are good
anywhere the business is located. For a list of the "CASH AND
CARRY" cards we will carry each weekend,
