Bible Study Pilgrimage

Bible Study Pilgrimage

Deacon Rick Stachura recently led parishioners participating in the “Bible and the Virgin Mary” bible study on a pilgrimage to the Dominican Monastery in Buffalo. The group was inspired by the collection of 800 statues of the Virgin Mary from around the world, including one dating back to the 12th century. Sr. Veronica Mary, a Dominican sister at the monastery, led the tour.

Care Cases

Care Cases

St. Mary’s is bringing hope and dignity to local foster children by providing something they can carry as they move from home to home. Care Cases of WNY provides suitcases and tote bags filled with personal care items, books, journals and stuffed animals. The bags are customized for boys and girls of various ages and are distributed through social workers at foster care agencies. Recently, Family Faith Formation families donated care cases as part of their community service projects. This initiative began in 2016 by Deacon Paul Snyder and Sue Snyder and the parish community has donated 300 cases to date. If you would like to help visit www.stmaryswormville.org and click on “Get Involved.”
