Monday, November 24, 2014 by Mark Ciemcioch

Bishop Richard J. Malone represented Buffalo and the United States at the Vatican in November, as he was asked to be a part of the International Colloquium: The Complementarity of Man and Woman to reaffirm the Catholic Church’s position on marriage. Attending the colloquium was an important affirmation of Bishop Malone’s work as chair of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth.

The colloquium was where Pope Francis officially announced he would make his first papal visit to the United States, as he will attend the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia in Sept. 2015.

Thursday, November 20, 2014 by Kevin Keenan


Bishop Richard J. Malone has granted dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation (weekend of Nov. 22-23) for Catholics living in communities hit by this week’s unprecedented snowfall.    

“It will be up to the local pastor to decide whether or not to celebrate weekend Masses in those parishes,” Bishop Malone said.  “It is my advice that parishioners living in snowbound areas use their best judgment when it comes to attending Mass.  Their safety and well-being is a priority, and they need to comply with local travel advisories."

Bishop Malone outside the VaticanBishop Richard J. Malone was present at the Vatican on Nov. 17, when Pope Francis announced he will attend the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia next September.  Bishop Malone is in Rome, participating in the International Colloquium: The Complementarity of Man and Woman, through Nov. 19. 

It was a thrill to be in the presence of the Holy Father when he made the announcement,” Bishop Malone said.  “I am delighted he has selected the World Meeting of Families for his first visit to the United States.  On many occasions, the pope has stressed the importance of the traditional family – at the colloquium, he said marriage between a man and woman is a ‘fundamental pillar’ of society and that children have the right to grow up with a mother and father. I look forward to leading a delegation from the Diocese of Buffalo to Philadelphia next year as the pope brings his message of  peace and love to our nation.”

Bishop Malone is chair of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth.
