Please join us for a Zoom gathering on Tuesday, October 6th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. as members of our Road to Renewal Committee facilitate these conversations regarding your experience of Church in this vicariate. The link will be on the parish website as well as on the Diocese of Buffalo website or at www.roadtorenewal.org.

Spiritual Adoption Baby Shower

Thank you to all that participated in our Spiritual Adoption program this year. To everyone that collected spare change in your baby bottles, brought a gift to the baby shower, decorated for or served at the baby shower – thank you and to all that prayed, your prayers are especially appreciated. All gifts and money collected at our spiritual adoption baby shower have been donated to All Babies Cherished in Batavia.

If you weren’t able to attend the baby shower last weekend, you can still turn in your baby bottles.  Just leave them in the back of either church and we’ll pick them up! We ask that you return the bottles, whether they are full or empty.

Fr. Dan and the St. Maximilian Kolbe Celebrate Life Committee

ProlifeWith the unfortunate passing of the Reproductive Act we want to highlight some of the great organizations that are offered in this area:

All Babies Cherished Pregnancy Assistance Center is a Christ centered organization and is willing to share the Word of God through words and deeds.

The center provides emotional support, encouragement, guidance, life skills and parenting, as well as of an array of other classes, and practical assistance to mothers and fathers, as well as on-going family support as needed during pregnancy and the first three years of the child’s life.

Mother Teresa Home supports homeless pregnant and/or parenting young people who are in need of basic necessities like food and shelter. The goal of the program is to teach young mothers parenting skills, education, health and much more to help with their long-term economic independence.

It is a sanctuary for those who need a fresh start.
