Saint Stan's Polish Festival- Castle Hayne, NC


We recently moved to Wilmington, North Carolina after our retirements. Okay, we have been coming down for close to nine years as we have children and grandchildren here, but this is our new home. One thing that was important to us was finding a new church home and we have found one in Saint Stanislaus Catholic Church in Castle Hayne, about three mile from the house. 



Now this church has an amazing event once a year that is their major fundraiser and that is the Polish Festival. About five-thousand people descend on this little parish and I am amazed at how well it is run. 


The number of volunteers from the parish is astounding, and the help from local law enforcement is great. 


Front Street Brewery, a favorite of mine, brews a special Saint Stan's Baltic Porter for the event. 


The food is excellent and there is no admission charge, nor parking charge. 


Okay, if you are reading this now you missed it for this year, but definitely go next year. 


I decided to focus on the people who volunteered their time to make this event come together.


These are the faces of my new brothers and sisters in Christ at Saint Stan's.


As you can see, we are blessed.
