On the death of his parents, Saint Stanislas Szczepanowski (1734-1798), gave away his ample fortune to the poor, and received the priesthood from the Bishop of Krakow. He was a parish priest in Czembocz. In 1072, he was the Bishop of Krakow and gained a reputation for his charity and his work as a reformer and preacher. In the "spirit" of St. Stanislas we try to do charitable works.
O God, our father in heaven
to honor you, Saint Stanislas
faced martydom with courage.
Keep us strong and loyal in our
faith until death.
An anonymous prayer.
Stanislaw is the "National Saint of Poland," and patron saint of the archbishops of Krakow. He was canonized, in 1253, by Pope Innocent IV.
Facts About Saints
You are the visitor since August 10, 2006
- The original name of our Order was Sovereign Order of Saint Stanislas, to avoid confusion with the original Order of Saint Stanislas.
- Later the "Sovereign" was dropped, when it was obvious that the Polish or Russians were not going to bring back the old Order of Saint Stanislas.
- Today the new Order of St Stanislas has branches all over the world and is composed of people working together to help all members of mankind, in their hour of need.
