Upon This Rock

Thank you to all our parishioners who contribute to Upon This Rock, the Buffalo Diocese campaign to strengthen parishes and provide enhanced pastoral care and outreach.

St. Mary’s receives disbursements twice a year from Upon This Rock. In our most recent disbursement, our parish received $22,269.39. These funds have been set aside for upcoming needs. In the past, Upon This Rock Funds have supported needs including a portion of the restoration of our stained glass windows in Church, as well as a new Rectory roof and a new truck for work at our cemetery and on other parish grounds.

Upon This Rock is a five-year campaign, which began in the first quarter of 2016.

The Erie County Surrogate has required that this notice be published until Friday, April 9. It is relative to the intent to repurpose Upon This Rock funds originally earmarked for the operation of Christ the King Seminary for “Formation” expenses associated with the training of seminarians, diaconate candidates, and students of lay ecclesial programs.
