Lifelong CatechesisForming Catholic identity across generations
The sound of Alleluias fills the 50 days of Easter Sunday to Pentecost as we give thanks for the gift of our salvation. The Easter Triduum recalls the passion and resurrection of Christ in the sacred journey from Holy Thursday to Easter Vigil. "Dying he destroyed our death. Rising he restored our life."
Stanislaus, Bishop and Martyr
Stanislaus was the only child of a noble family from Poland, and an answer to his parents’ prayers. They dedicated his life to God. He was ordained as archdeacon and preacher and brought reformation of morals to the people of Cracow. Stanislaus, now a bishop, excommunicated the brutal ruler of Poland for abducting a nobleman’s wife. When Boleslaus II’s troops would not kill Stanislaus during a Mass, he went into the chapel and murdered Stanislaus himself. Saint Stanislaus is the patron saint of Cracow.
