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, 
As the brief month of February comes to an end, we look forward to our Lenten journey, which begins on this Wednesday, March 1st. There are four masses offered that day. Ashes are distributed after the gospel/homily. For those who need an evening mass, we offer a 5:30 mass this year at St. Mark, with an invitation to join our Holy Name Society , who will be offering their first of five Lenten Fish Fries.

 Once again, we will be offering confessions during the season of Lent as part of our Diocesan “Leave the Light on for You Program”. The schedule is as follows: 
Wednesday, March 8—5-6 p.m.—St. Mark 
Wednesday, March 15—5-6 p.m.-St. Rose 
Wednesday, March 22-5-7 p.m.—St. Mark 
Wednesday, March 29—5-7 p.m.—St. Rose 
Wednesday, April 5– 5-6 p.m.-St. Mark 
Wednesday, April 12—5-6 p.m.-St. Rose 

Hopefully these dates will be convenient for those who may wish to receive the sacrament, but can’t get there either during the day, or on Saturdays. Wishing you all a blessed and holy Lenten Season. As we begin, I invite you to remember the words of our beloved Natalie Lewis, who now is adding to the beauty of heaven: “Kindness can change the world”. 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.
