Lenten afternoon of recollection

Mark your calendar!  St. Joseph Church will hold a “Lenten Afternoon of Recollection” on Saturday, March 4th from 12:00 p.m.—4:00 p.m.  (Recollection means attention to the presence of God in our lives.  It includes the withdrawal from external and earthly affairs in order to be with God.)  We will begin with lunch at noon, followed by Deacon Bill Hynes speaking to us on the importance of Lent and Easter.  All are invited!  Please contact the rectory  at 532-5100 to sign up.

St Mary's Parish


Rev. Joseph D. Porpiglia, 2008



St. Joseph's Church has a very long history with many stories. Part of its history is as a welcoming community for joining parishes of St. Paul of the Cross (1864), Dayton; St. Elizabeth (1939), Cherry Creek; St. John Fisher (1940), Dayton; St. Joan of Arc (1950), Perrysburg; and St. Joseph’s Church, (1898) Gowanda.

Together we continue to move forward and bring the Gospel message to our larger overall community. I hope that you might join us in continuing to bring the message of Jesus Christ to others, as we continue on our pilgrim journey each day.
