Joining parishioners of St. Stanislaus and Corpus Christi churches, were Priests, Deacons, Felician Sisters, St. Casimir Church, the Chopin Singing Society, Harmony Polish Folk Ensemble, and the Polish Heritage Dancers, among the many faithful from across the Diocese of Buffalo. Hymns were sung in English, Polish, and Latin. daybreaktv.org
