Dear Friends on the Internet,

Peace and all good things! It is my pleasure to welcome you to our Parish Family here at the basilica of St. Stanislaus, Bishop & Martyr and its web site on the Internet. St. Stanislaus is an active parish community founded in 1891; that is, ministered by the Conventual Franciscan Friars of the Province of St. Anthony of Padua, the Franciscan Missionary Sisters of Assisi; and the Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph.

On July 7, 1991 during our parish's centennial celebrations, Pope John Paul II raised the status of our church to a "minor basilica". The word basilica comes from the Greek words "royal house".

It is our hope that you come to visit our "royal house" of God. Come and experience the warmth and hospitality of our Parish Family. There is a Polish saying: "Gosc w domu, Bog w domu" which means: "A guest in the house is God in the house." Please browse through our web site and learn more about the growing Catholic community and all the good works that happen in this parish. Then come and experience for yourself the mercy and love of God in His "royal house".

ReDiscover Your Spiritual Roots


Rediscover Your Spiritual Roots - Bishop Rozanski has begun an evangelization initiative in the Diocese of Springfield that draws in part on the upcoming Year of Mercy. Under the guidance of Sr. Paula Robillard and the Office of Faith Formation a planning committee has been formed and has been hard at work creating a blue print for this initiative which will culminate in a parish based evangelization effort that will reach out in a particular way to those who have been away from the Church.

A very important first part of this process that involves all of our parishioners is for you to complete a survey online. In order for the Diocese to plan an effective program we need to hear from you about your experiences with the church, the strengths you perceive and the areas which cause you difficulty or may need more attention. I also encourage you to make the survey known to family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. who no longer practice their faith. We very much want them to know that we want and need to hear from them.

The survey can be accessed either at diospringfield.org or iobserve.org and will be open through October 5th. I strongly encourage you to take the time to complete the survey and to encourage others to do the same especially those who have left the Church or no longer practice their faith. I estimate that it will take you about 20 minutes to complete the survey. The only way to complete the survey is on line, that is there is no paper version of the survey. Thank you in advance for taking the time to do the survey and for encouraging others to do so.





As a Roman Catholic Community, we are dedicated to knowing, loving and serving God through the communal celebration of Jesus Christ.  Building upon our foundational ethnic heritage and quality Catholic education, we, as a parish family welcome diversity and value each other's God-given gifts in a spirit of Franciscan joy and love as we journey together to bring our community into the Kingdom of God.
