St. Stanislaus Catholic Church has been part of the South Omaha community since its founding by Polish immigrants in 1919. As we prepare to observe our parish centennial in 2019, our mission is to remain a cornerstone of Catholic Faith in South Omaha by implementing the vision of Jesus and passing it on to our children and theirs. Our magnificent church and our respect for our Polish heritage are a testament to the sacrifice and love of those who founded our parish.
Through the outreach activities supported by our Men's Club, Ladies Guild, Golden Gems, and St. Vincent de Paul Society, our parishioners go forth from our sacred space to share the love of Jesus Christ with the needy, the elderly, and others in the St. Stanislaus neighborhood and the South Omaha community.
St. Stanislaus parish is recognized as an active center of Polish culture in South Omaha and its grounds feature a historical monument awarded by the City of Omaha Mayor's Historical Grant program. We invite the greater Omaha community to experience and enjoy our ancestors' faith and customs at our Polish Heritage Mass and Harvest Dinner in October, at the annual St. Stanislaus Polish Festival on the third Sunday of August (a regular winner in Omaha Magazine's "Best of Omaha" competition), and at our other religious and cultural events throughout the year.
Beginning with the 2018-19 school year, the parish again welcomes students to the former St. Stanislaus School building (location of the original parish church), which will serve as the site of the Omaha Catholic School Consortium Dual Language Academy.
