What Cross Do You Carry?
Lent is a perfect time to “Let Go, Let God”. The crosses we carry make our souls heavy. Give God your crosses and burdens by writing them down on a bandaid and placing them on His Cross that we have on our Church altar. This Cross, will be wrapped in red, venerated, and carried in the procession on Good Friday and by His wounds we will be healed.
From the handful of families in 1849 that built our beloved church, to the many families that sit in our pews in 2020, we have together supported the growth and prosperity of St. Mary’s Swormville for over 171 years!
Bishop Michael Fisher, Chair Rick Cronin, and Deacon Steve Schumer have launched Appeal 2021 and announced the $10 million goal, as well as “HOPE for all Seasons” as the campaign theme.
Your donation to the Appeal supports Catholic Charities of Buffalo and the Fund for the Faith. Your financial gift stays in Western New York and helps those in our communities who are struggling to live, work, and support families, and those who need spiritual care and support.
