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
As you know, I’m very much an early morning
person, especially as the sun comes up, prompting
the day to begin – I feel God the closest then.
As I write this letter, my thoughts and prayers
go to two recent visits with families gathered around
the bedside of their dying loved one. Celebrating last
rites for the dying, with families, is without question
one of the most humbling and profound moments of a
priest’s ministry and life. What a fragile journey this
life is, friends. Treat each other gently and with love.
Accept, tolerate, forgive, embrace on another. Why
waste any time….you know?!
Last weekend our churches were both bursting
at the seams with baptisms and first communions.
It was pure joy and grace for our two parish communities.
Congratulations to all of our families who
celebrated these glorious sacraments!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of our moms!
Celebrate the day with gratitude, love, and admiration
whether over a visit, a call, brunch, dinner, dessert, or
all of the above!! And for those of us unable to, remember
mom with all of the power of those happy
memories of her. They watch and guide us from their
place in heaven above…..
Enjoy your week, everyone! Be good to
yourself, and those you journey with.
God’s Love and Mine,
