Diocese of Buffalo - Latest News

Governor Cuomo and the leadership of the New York State Senate and Assembly have announced a three-way agreement on a state budget, which again does not include the Education Tax Credit, a critically needed piece of legislation for the parents and students of Catholic and other nonpublic education in the state.

Following is a statement of Timothy Cardinal Dolan, archbishop of New York and president of the New York State Catholic Conference:

“Last week, I made the comment that there would be plenty of blame to go around if the Education Tax Credit didn’t get done in the state budget. And now, sadly, this has played out yet again. My brother bishops and I are sorely disappointed in all of our political leaders in Albany, who again assured us of their strong personal support, but again could not deliver for the children of our state. Yet we have no alternative but to turn to them again and implore them to please pass this legislation once and for all before the close of the legislative session.

“The Education Tax Credit encourages increased charitable giving to public schools and to foundations which provide scholarships to help children in need escape failing public schools. This is why the legislation is supported by so many in our minority communities, where the financial need is the greatest and the disparity in educational outcomes between public and Catholic schools are so great. Parents in these communities are desperate for a better future for their children, a future that our schools can provide. Why their representatives are insensitive to them is a mystery.

“The glory of Holy Week”
2 days ago by Kevin Keenan

Bishop Malone processes on Palm Sunday

Bishop Richard J. Malone used his homily at the start of Holy Week at St. Joseph Cathedral in downtown Buffalo, to remind worshipers, “God’s holy word on Palm Sunday is a meditation on the meaning of suffering in God’s plan of salvation."

Constant anxiety in our lives can leave us weary, the bishop said.  “The glory of this Holy Week, in God’s loving design, strangely, suffering can have power to yield new life.”  

 

The bishop noted there is new life for us too, if we walk with Jesus.

The 2015 annual Rosary Novena for Life commences on Saturday, March 28, with 8 a.m. Mass at St. Rose of Lima Parish, Parkside and Parker avenues, Buffalo, and will continue on one Saturday each month through November.

Following each service, there will be a peaceful, prayerful procession to a nearby abortion clinic (optional). At the clinic, participants will pray the rosary with the intention that today’s society will choose life instead of abortion. The group will return to St. Rose of Lima for closing prayers.

Bishop Richard J. Malone will be the main celebrant at the Mass on April 25.
