Stan attended Cure d’Ars grade school and graduated high school from the Redemptorist minor seminary, St. Joseph ‘s College in Edgerton, Wisconsin. He later attended St. Thomas Seminary in Denver and graduated with a B.A. in Philosophy from Regis College. He went on to have a rich professional life as a teacher of theology at Holy Family High School, Denver, and a Director of Religious Education in several parishes in Colorado, as well as, Associate Director of Education for the Archdiocese of Denver. His work in religious education took him to St. Francis of Assisi Parish, San Antonio, Texas for five years.
