Catholic Faith

Our Mission

"Learning Together for Life"

We partner with the home and the Church and, together, we foster the love of learning.

École St. Stanislaus commits to making our school a caring Christian community that nurtures:
  • acceptance of responsibility
  • generosity
  • honesty
  • integrity
  • appreciation of individual differences
We help each member of our community develop their full potential. Our school environment is safe and caring, and every member of our community is treated with dignity and respect.

Throughout the year, we celebrate our Catholic traditions by coming together as a community in prayer for liturgical celebrations.  We also celebrate our school's namesake, Saint Stanislaus Kostka, annually on his feast day of November 13.  Each year, we commemorate this special occasion with a full day of activities for our students to take part in and grow in their faith and knowledge of our namesake.

Patron Saint - St. Stanislaus Kostka

"May we be led to the glory of heaven by the prayers of the Virgin Mary."

Stanislaus was born in 1550 of a noble Polish family. At fourteen he studied at the college of the Jesuits in Vienna with his brother Paul. Though Stanislaus was always bright and kind, he was treated badly by his brother for two years. He always forgave his brother.

Stanislaus became very ill. He prayed to St. Barbara to help him. Then he had a vision in which two angels brought Communion to him. The Blessed Virgin Mary cured him and asked him to become a priest in the Society of Jesus. Stanislaus had to leave Vienna because his father did not want him to become a priest.

At Rome Stanislaus lived for ten months as a novice. A priest said to him: ''Stanislaus, you love Our Lady very much.'' ''Yes”, he replied. “She is my Mother!'' And then he said: ''The Mother of God is my Mother.''

Stanislaus died on the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1568, at the age of seventeen. His example teaches young people to love Jesus and Mary.
