Our Bible Study group is meeting again on Wednesday mornings from 9:30AM to 11:15 AM at the Parish Center in East Pembroke.  Our goal is to first come to know Jesus and our Church better through God’s Word and second share Christian fellowship. 

At this first session a DVD on The Church Fathers will be shown and then three studies entitled:  “Angels”, “Divine Mercy” and “Our Father’s Plan” will be briefly explained and one will be selected for sharing in the following weeks.


For more information or questions call Elle Fronckowiak 585-762-9955 or 716-474-0152.

Last Saturday our Confirmandi had their Confirmation Retreat.  Normally the retreat is held at Fatima Shrine but because of the unique year we are having, it was decided to hold the retreat locally and it was held at St. Maximilian Kolbe Corfu Site.  As part of the retreat, the students were given a scavenger hunt. We thought it would be fun to share some of the questions with you and see how well you do! All the answers can be found inside the Church.

  1. In the stained glass window of Mary, how many roses can be seen on her Immaculate Heart?
  2. In the stained glass window of Jesus, how many fingers is He pointing to His Sacred Heart?
  3. Who is the artist of the two church paintings/drawings?
  4. Where is the window that was a gift from Rev. C. O’Byre?
  5. Which Station is in memory of Mary Conway?
  6. Which family dedicated something used in baptisms? BONUS: What is it called?
  7. What prayer is posted below the Act of Contrition?
  8. What color is St. Maximilian Kolbe’s habit?
  9. What outer color does the Infant of Prague have on? BONUS: Why is the Infant in that color? ______
  10. Translate the following from Latin into English: “Jesus tombe la premiere fois”
  11. Where was the statue of St. Joseph made?
  12. What is St. Patrick stepping on?
  13. What is inside the crown in one of the windows?
  14. Write down the symbols that are above and below the cross on the Paschal Candle.
  15. What is on the circular window?
  16. When facing the sanctuary, which side is the sanctuary lamp on?
  17. How many jars of oil are displayed?

The students were also asked to submit a “calendar worthy” photo. Congratulations to Eric Von Kramer on your winning entry.  The original color picture will be posted on our FaceBook page.

Road to Renewal

Let’s Walk Together

The Diocese of Buffalo invites you to join us for an online Renewal Consultation Session to learn about and discuss the new Diocesan Road to Renewal Initiative. We want very much to understand the needs, concerns and hopes that you have for the Faith communities in your area of the Diocese. Please join us for a Zoom gathering on Tuesday, October 6th from 6:30-8:30pm as members of our Road to Renewal Committee facilitate these conversations regarding your experience of Church in this vicariate. You can reach the zoom session through the direct link: www.roadtorenewal.org/zoom. Please look for the box that corresponds with our date and then click on the Wyoming button.

In addition to these sessions, there are opportunities for those who prefer to share their insights in writing. Please send an email to renewal@buffalodiocese.org outlining your thoughts on renewing our Church’s mission and ministry, or take the online survey at www.roadtorenewal.org. Written letters can also be mailed directly to Diocese of Buffalo, Road to Renewal, 795 Main Street, Buffalo NY 14203.

Save the date and the hour!

Sunday, October 4th, 2PM -3PM

We will be standing or sitting (10 ft. apart) for 60 minutes in prayer displaying a Pro-Life sign, at the corner of Main & Allegheny, Corfu. (Meet in front of the Corfu Church at 1:45pm)

The pre-born babies in our country need our prayer and help NOW more than ever.

The outcome of the November 3rd Election will either increase the protection from abortion for tiny pre-born babies or it will work to solidify the legal right to kill them throughout their 9 months of growth and even beyond should the abortion fail.
