St. Stanislav’s Day 2020 – Fulfilling God’s Will

Students looking forward

Each year the entire school community celebrates St. Stanislav’s Day to mark the feast of the Institution’s patron. This year it is under the title of Fulfilling God’s Will which was the motto of Alojzij Šuštar (1920-2020), the Archbishop of Ljubljana between 1980-97. The centenary of his birth is being celebrated this academic year. Inspirational figure of Archbishop Šuštar serves as the guideline for these festive days, as well as the entire school year in terms of his endeavours in the development of the Church in Slovenia and his contribution to democratization and independence of Slovenia.

Unlike previous years, all celebrations have been restricted to virtual mediums this year. Nevertheless, we have the pleasure of inviting you to follow us online. The occasion will be marked with holy mass and a solemn celebration on Friday 13th November 2020. Holy mass will be celebrated at 3.30 p.m. by the Archbishop of Ljubljana Msgr. Stanislav Zore. The solemn celebration will take place at 5 p. m.. Karel Gržan, Ph.D.,  a Slovene priest, will unveil the outstanding message of Šuštar’s life and work and make them resonate with the larger message in the world we live in today. The performance will be given by the students of all schools in St. Stanislav’s Institution, proving their versatility, talents and joy of sharing it all with us.

The entire event has been planned digitally so we are looking forward to meeting you online.
