St. Stanislaus Parish - designated for Polish immigrants in Bristol, Connecticut, United States.

Founded in 1919. It is one of the Polish-American Roman Catholic parishes in New England in the Archdiocese of Hartford.


On April 21, 1919, Bishop John Joseph Nilan named Fr. George Bartlewski founding pastor of St. Stanislaus Parish. The construction of a basement church, Bishop John Joseph Nilan blessed on September 26, 1920. Auxiliary Bishop John G. Murray dedicated the basement church on May 30, 1921.

In 1954 the basement church was demolished and Masses were temporarily moved to the school hall as plans were made to complete the church. A new Gothic edifice in brick rose on the site of the original church and was dedicated on May 20, 1956. The architect of the new church was James J. O'Shaughnessy.

The organ at St. Stanislaus Church was built in 1956 by Austin Organs, Inc.. It is a two manual instrument with 13 ranks of pipes.[1]
