St. Stan’s tour planned

St. Stanislaus Kostka Church, 1124 Hudson Ave., Rochester, will participate in a statewide open house of historic religious structures from 3 to 5 p.m. May 19.

Parish historian Kathleen Urbanic and artisan Sandra Bialaszewski will answer questions and give information about the 104-year-old building. The Romanesque Revival church was designed by the firm Gordon and Madden and features a red pressed-brick exterior and a distinctive domed steeple. The church’s interior art conveys the parish’s heritage in murals, stained glass, statues and elaborate stenciling. A shrine dedicated in 2008 honors Our Lady of Czestochowa — Poland’s Black Madonna — and Blessed Pope John Paul II.

The open house is part of the state Landmark Conservancy’s Sacred Sites Program, which provides grants to restore and repair projects statewide; the church received grants from Sacred Sites for its upkeep.
