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 Friends,
I am actually writing this letter to you on a
Friday, as the 2014 winter storm subsides. I
know we in the city and northern suburbs have
been spared the horrors that our relatives,
friends, and neighbors have endured elsewhere,
but are hearts, nevertheless, have gone
out to them during these tumultuous days. I
want to tell you, dear parishioners, that a tragedy
did strike our 2 parish communities on
Nov. 19th. Our beloved housekeeper, Christel
Strachan, who had been in Germany tending to
her ailing mother, who recently died (Nov.
17), learned that, tragically, on Nov. 19th, her
husband Mike suffered a massive heart attack
while shoveling, and died. Mike was one of
the most likeable persons you could ever meet.
By the time you read this, our Thanksgiving
holiday will be over, but it is still a good time
to remind each other how fragile, precious,
and unpredictable life is. Take nothing, and
no one, for granted. Mend and heal, strengthen
and forgive, and let go of whatever is in the
way of what matters most in life: our loved
ones. Our deepest sympathies go out to Christel
and her entire family during this tragic period
of such profound loss.
Find, and hold on to your loved ones, my
God’s Love and Mine,
Fr. Joe

News & Upcoming Events 

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.
