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
DDear Parishioners, I am writing this to you, as I usually do, on a Tuesday morning. Our 6th Annual Golf Tournament was held on Monday, July 11th, once again at the Links at Ivy Ridge. Once again, it was a huge night for all involved, as well as a resounding success! Our final figures aren’t quite finished as of this writing, but it looks as though we will clear AT LEAST $20,000, bringing at least $10,000 to each of our parish coffers/benefits! Thank you to everyone involved: our golfers, our dinner guests, our incredibly generous sponsors, our volunteers, and the remarkable staff at Ivy Ridge. A special thanks, however, goes to Anne Gaulin and Jim Davin, without who we would not have had a successful tournament this year. They just did an amazing job!
I can’t wait until next year’s event, which is set for Friday, July 21st! We have two fun parish events coming up in August, both at the end of the month. Please stay tuned for articles and details concerning our second annual food truck night, as well as the second winepairing dinner at the Phoenix Restaurant.
Bishop Malone has graciously invited me to attend a series of conferences on church leadership and the challenges in the 21st century at Notre Dame University this week. I am honored and grateful, especially since I have never seen the campus.
Please keep me in your prayers these next few days as I journey to South Bend, Indiana. Have a great week. Stay cool during this summer heat wave. God’s Love and Mine, Fr. Joe
