The Other St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish

St. Stanislaus Kostka, St. Louis, Missouri

A story of disputed ownership, conflict and excommunication. Today's article by Linda Leicht in Ozarks Local News, entitled St. Stanislaus grows despite diocese fight reports on the current state of affairs and provides a brief synopsis of the history.

One of many interesting quotes:

"We are trying to redefine ourselves to be a welcoming Catholic parish of Polish heritage," Bozek said. "We want to celebrate our roots, our heritage, but at the same time we want to say if you are looking for a spiritual home, you are welcome with us." - Father Marek Bozek, Pastor
