Castle Hayne, NC

Dedication of Our Church

St. Stanislaus remained a mission of St. Mary until 1933, when it became a parish under the care (by 1935) of the Conventual Franciscan Friars of Immaculate Conception Province. Over the next three decades, the Franciscans and their Religious Sisters from Syracuse, NY, ministered to St. Stanislaus, bringing a rectory, parish hall, convent and school, and in 1951 an Army chapel from Camp Davis in Holly Ridge, which Bishop Vincent S. Waters dedicated as the new church.

The school closed in 1962, but Franciscan friars continued as pastors for many years. Meanwhile, Castle Hayne and St. Stanislaus, continued to grow as retirees and new businesses discovered the Wilmington area. By the mid-1990s, the old church building was clearly inadequate. The building couldn’t even be sold, so it was donated to the local fire department for a training exercise. In 1997, then-pastor Fr. Douglas Reed held two services: one as articles were removed from the church and another before the church was burned. Construction of a new church had already begun, and the building was dedicated by Bishop F. Joseph Gossman on December 13, 1998.
