As usual, our Buildings and Grounds committee has been hard at work this summer. They have been keeping our churches and buildings in good repair and looking awesome. Two more rooms in the rectory have been given a fresh coat of paint and are looking great thanks to Dave and Fr. Dan . Thank you to Melanie Anderson for doing the landscaping at our Corfu site and for giving Fr. Dan’s side yard a much needed makeover. Hopefully we’ll get some grass to grow back there again now. If you are in the area, Fr. Dan would love to give you a quick tour so you can see the progress he has made. Thanks to the Jensen family, the landscaping at the East Pembroke site has been worked on and a very large branch that was brought down during one of the thunderstorms was removed. The furnace in the Hall that has been leaking will also be replaced next month. Cameras were installed in our Corfu Church, which have enabled Fr. Dan to live stream his daily and weekend Mass to his YouTube page so those that are unable to return to church yet can still worship with us and be part kept close to our Parish Family.

The garage in Corfu is still in need of new siding but with the cancellation of several of our fundraisers and the current status of the virus, we have had to postpone that work. We hope to keep that on the schedule for next spring.

We would like to thank the Social Club for making the above repairs and improvements possible. Everything has been paid for through their fundraising efforts and from funds received from Upon This Rock. We are also pleased to announce that we received another disbursement of our parish share of Upon This Rock funds in the amount of $4,470.01. The total amount we have received to date (7/31/17–present) is $44,861.82. Thank you to all that have contributed. The funds received will continue to be used to help with the cost of the upcoming projects at both of our church sites.

The new missalettes (beginning August 9th) are now available at Church and in the vestibule outside the Parish Office. Please feel free to take one so you can follow along with Fr. Dan or another Mass you might watch. If you would like a missalette but are unable to get out, please contact the parish office and we will have one dropped off to your door or mailbox.

The most recent WNY Catholic is also available along with One Bread, One Body.

Parents: We have been discussing how to handle the Lifelong Faith Formation classes for next year in light of the current Caronavirus situation. More information and an opportunity for input will be sent home in the coming week. If your child is not currently enrolled in our program, but you would be registering them this year, please call the Parish Office so we can include you in the mailing. Thank you.

Our Parish Basket Auction is still on although it will look a little different this year! Mark your calendars for Saturday August 15th, 2-7PM in Corfu. We will be selling tickets and browsing baskets all afternoon under the tent in the parking lot. This way we can spread people out and not have a large crowd. Drawings will be done later in the evening and we will be contacting people by phone when you win a basket. Unfortunately we will not be serving food this year. All social distancing rules will apply.

Right now, we are in need of your donated baskets and gift cards! They may be dropped off to the church basement in Corfu or at the parish office during the week. We are also collecting scratch off lottery tickets for our Treasure Chest Door Prize that will be raffled off at our Basket Raffle. Simply purchase your favorite scratch off lottery tickets and drop them in the collection box or bring them to the parish office before August 9th.  Thank you for your donations and support of our parish.

Please contact the food pantry at (585) 599-6414 if you need assistance. Even if you just need temporary assistance during the pandemic, please give us a call. All requests are kept confidential.

The food pantry is in need of the following items:

Cereal

Canned Fruit/Fruit Cups

Soups

Flour

Canned Mixed Vegetables (no corn or green beans please)

Rice

Pudding/Jello

Health and body items (i.e. toothpaste, shampoo, soap, etc.)

Any monetary donations can be sent to our parish office at 18 West Main Street, Corfu, or can be made online at the Corfu United Presbyterian Church site http://www.corfuchurch.org (please write ‘food pantry’ in the notes section).

Thank you for all you do.
