St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish/the Sanctuary of The Divine Mercy, Chicago

"Along the frenetic Kennedy Expressway, in the heart of Chicago, St. Stanislaus Kostka Church/the Sanctuary of The Divine Mercy, stands as a sign of contradiction, a light to the world, an oasis of life-giving water calling all of God's people to find peace by turning with trust to The Divine Mercy."  ~Fr. Anthony Bus, C. R., pastor

My family and I were blessed to pay a visit St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish/the Sanctuary of The Divine Mercy and home of the world's largest monstrance, Our Lady of the Sign-Ark of Mercy in Chicago.  It was a gorgeous, gorgeous church!  We were greeted at the door by a woman who was mopping the floor.  She was so friendly and welcoming and invited us to come back anytime.  The church is open 24/7 for Eucharistic Adoration.  We will be sure to take her up on her kind offer the next time we are in Chicago.

The confessional looks so welcoming with the open doors!

beautiful stations!

The breathtaking frescoes look like they need some care as the paint is showing signs of peeling.

Isn't the altar magnificent?

Of course, pictures don't do justice to the beauty of the church.

Adoration is in a side chapel within the main church.

Here I am praying for your intentions.
The image of the Divine Mercy can be seen just beyond the monstrance.  Jesus, I trust in you!
