Parish Bulletins are now permitted but only as follows: USHERS will distribute bulletins (with masks/gloves) ONLY at the end of Masses as the community is leaving the Basilica! Please do not leave bulletins in the pews or Basilica. Thank you for your cooperation.
Thank you for your patience and following all the protocols for our being back in Church. Please know that our Office Staff is limited, as not all are allowed to be in the Parish Office at once. Your patience is much appreciated.
Many are asking about events. At this time, Fr. Joe says: First Holy Communion will be re-scheduled, probably in September or October. The Parents and Teachers need some time to re-prepare our Precious Ones for this wonderful Sacrament. Confirmation will most likely be celebrated in early Fall also. Social events are not on the calendar yet. Yet to be determined are the Parish Appreciation Party, the Parish Picnic in August. Even meetings for social groups of the Parish cannot be held yet. Let us pray for patience and progress as things improve, by the grace of God.
On a positive note, the new A/C system for the Upper Basilica is progressing well. Due to the restrictions, spacing, and sanitizing, we will continue to use ONLY OUR UPPER BASILICA until further notice.
Remain Calm. Pray intently. TRUST in Jesus.
Words of Welcome from the Rector

Peace and All Good Things!

Welcome / Witamy to the Basilica of St. Stanislaus, Bishop & Martyr via our web site! We are a vibrant and spirit-filled Roman Catholic Parish. Founded in 1891 and under the care of the Conventual Franciscan Friars since 1902, we continue to be a strong community of faith. Our strong Polish roots and tradition have now blossomed into a diverse community of faith. Our St. Stanislaus School radiates faith and Franciscan spirit. Besides the Friars, we are blessed to have the Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph and the Franciscan Missionary Sisters of Assisi as part of our ministry team. As you venture through our web site, please make the journey to come in person to worship, pray, and build community with us here on Front Street in Chicopee. In the spirit of Francis of Assisi, I wish you: Peace and all good things!

Friar Joseph Bayne, OFM Conv.
