IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger announced that there will be no regularly scheduled public Masses in the Diocese of Buffalo until further notice due to an abundance of caution and growing concerns about the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Churches may remain open, as locally feasible, and the faithful are encouraged to continue to visit and pray while maintaining a prudent distance from one another.

Therefore, there will be no weekday or weekend Masses celebrated at Our Lady of Peace until further notice.

Our Lady of Peace will continue to have Wednesday Eucharistic Adoration from 9 am until 6 pm in CHURCH.

Greetings from our Pastor

     I also invite you to discover the vibrant Liturgical and Ministerial life of our parish. Perhaps you can see yourself becoming involved in our mission to imitate Christ as we are attentive to the needs of others. My door is always open should you have questions or wish to dialogue on your faith journey.
