The committee meets on the second Thursday of each month. For more information, contact Deacon Tony Bellitto at 215-783-2946 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Gardening Group meets every Wednesday morning, weather permitting, at 8:45am from Easter through Halloween to tend the grounds around the Church. (Flowers only; no lawn care.) The Gardening Group has won several awards from both the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and area gardening associations. Our goal is to make the Church grounds beautiful and to attract people in our community to St. Stanislaus Church.

Respect Life Committee
We proclaim the Pro-Life message of the Catholic Church, giving witness to the Gospel of Life in word and deed. In the words of Pope John Paul II, “Today…the Church must, with clarity and patience, strongly uphold the Right to Life of everyone, especially of those not yet born, who therefore need special protection.” This committee promotes programs on all life issues, including abortion, euthanasia, the death penalty and AIDS. Its members promote the annual Respect Life Sunday and the March for Life in Washington, D.C. The committee meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 8pm in the Parish Center. Call Jeanne-Marie Motley with interest or questions: 215-450-0042 or email email@example.com
