Do you have a little time in your week to share with the young people of our Parish?
The Religious Education program is in urgent need of an adult willing to spend an hour per week before the 10:00 Mass on Sunday, teaching our faith to our 7th grade students. Training and materials will be provided.
Please prayerfully consider this wonderful gift of your time.
Call the rectory at 716-759-8554, or email [email protected]
Greetings from our Pastor
