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 Coventual 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.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
