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 Parishioners, We were blessed on Monday, May 16th with the presence of Bishop Malone, who conferred the Sacrament of Confirmation on 31 of our high school juniors. It was a glorious celebration of the Holy Spirit. Congratulations to our Confirmation class of 2016. God bless you!

Our Golf Tournament is fast approaching. Golfers, and supporters, please note that this year the tournament is on a Monday: July 11th. Flyers are now available to sign up for sponsorships for foursomes. Everything is pretty much the same as last year, with just a slight bump in price ($10.00 increase per golfer). Please call either rectory for flyers or pick up at all church entrances. To those who have golfed in the past couple of years, we will be mailing your flyer, provided we have your address. This tournament is the major fundraiser of both of our parishes in the summer months. Looking forward to our 6th gathering!

 Friends, Bishop Malone has officially appointed our beloved Fr. Suresh, Parochial Vicar of St. Christopher’s Parish on Niagara Falls Boulevard. If you are not familiar with St. Christopher’s, it is a large parish of over 3500 families, with approximately 440 students in the school. Currently, the parish only has one priest, the pastor, my friend Fr. Jekielek. It has been pure joy to host and welcome Fr. Suresh to our country and our diocese. My thanks to all of you for making his entry into the U.S. and Buffalo such a wonderful experience for him. He will be sorely missed, but as you can tell by the numbers, he is desperately needed. You may see him from time to time, as we are keeping a room for him on one of our campuses. God bless Fr. Suresh! Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

God bless you in His love. 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.
