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
Welcome to a most glorious time of the year as we begin
our season of Advent. I pray that all of you have a truly blessed season of renewal, hope and preparation for the birth of our Savior at Christmas.
Next weekend, Dec. 7th & 8th, we will be participating with all the parishes of the country in the appeal for retired religious. Ever since this appeal began over 20 years ago, the Diocese of Buffalo has come in second in the United States, just behind Chicago. There will be a second collec- tion for this appeal at all masses next weekend.
I would like to offer an opportunity to the St. Mark pa- rishioners a form of remembrance similar to something celebrated weekly at St. Rose. If you would care to memo- rialize a departed loved one via the Sanctuary Candle lo- cated next to the Tabernacle, you may do so. This is similar to a Mass intention, and the candle burns for 6 days. The cost for this memorial is $5.00, and the name of the person you are remembering will be printed in the bulletin. Please call the St. Mark rectory if you are interested.
For the time being, I will postpone the meeting that was
scheduled on Dec. 4th to begin a marriage preparation course. It appears December is too busy a time. For those interested, I will re-schedule after the first of the year. Wel- come to December everyone. God Bless you All.
God’s Love and Mine,
