Welcome to the Parishes of Saint Mark & Saint Rose of Lima

Led by our Shepherd & Pastor Fr. Joseph Rogliano, the parishes of St. Mark and St. Rose of Lima serve the spiritual needs of Roman Catholics from North Buffalo and beyond. Linked since the Fall of 2010, the parishes operate independently, however over time, they are gelling into a North Buffalo Community of Faith. If you are seeking a place to find spiritual fulfillment, we encourage you to visit one of our parishes for a weekend mass. We believe you will find a vibrant community where all are welcome and where you will find yourself quickly at home.

Message from our Pastor

Dear Parishioners,

This weekend ends the 6 month period of time that our



Saturday vigil Mass is held at St. Marks. A reminder that, begin- ning next weekend, April 5th, the vigil Mass will be held at St. Rose, up to, and including, September 27th. Please note everyone, that the vigil Mass will be at 4 p.m., and not 5:30.




As I mentioned in my letter last week, I am in need of training 2-3 Eucharistic Ministers from both parishes to conduct services if there is ever a time when a priest is not available. It is a very simple service, and as soon as I get names of those inter- ested in learning, I will conduct our training session. Please con- sider this important request from the Diocese.

As we continue to journey through Lent, I remind you about "The Way of the Cross" presentation being held at St. Mark



th

 




on Friday, April 4



 


at 7:30 p.m. Hopefully many of you will be



 


taking the time to come experience this prayerful and spiritual presentation.

This year, Mass on Holy Thursday will be held at St. Mark. I very much would like to include the ritual of feet wash- ing at that Mass, preferably 6 parishioners from each parish.

Please call the rectory if you are interested, and are willing to allow me to wash your feet during that Mass, a rich and prayerful gesture of my role as a servant of the church.

Next weekend, we welcome Sr. Mary McCarrick, Dioce- san director of Catholic Charities, to our parishes. She will be speaking briefly at all weekend Masses about the upcoming Catholic Charities Appeal, and the many services they provide throughout Western New York. I know you will join me and Fr, Tom in welcoming her.

All signs point to Spring’s gradual arrival! May the snow melt, may the gunk of winter by cleaned away, and may we embrace longer and brighter days!

God’s Love and mine,

Fr. Joe

Our Mission

The parishes of St. Mark and St. Rose of Lima were linked together in the Fall of 2010, in accordance with the Journey in Faith & Grace. The parishes operate independently. although with a great deal (and increasing instances) of collaboration.

While some day the parish councils may come together to write a joint Mission Statement, it may be difficult to improve on the one that we can find in Matthew:

Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world. Mt. 28: 19-20.
