St. Bernard, Our Lady of Czestochowa parishes to link
Friday, August 07, 2015 by Office of Communications

Bishop Richard J. Malone has informed members of two parishes in Kaisertown that their faith communities will be linking, effective Oct. 1.

The Pallottine Fathers have offered to send a priest to the Diocese of Buffalo to serve as pastor of both St. Bernard Parish in Buffalo and Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish in Cheektowaga. The two parishes will be linked, which means that they will be independent parishes sharing a pastor. The Pallottines may send a second priest to serve as parochial vicar for both parishes.

“Our pastoral planning process reflects the declining number of priests serving in the diocese,” Bishop Malone said. “We are fortunate that the Pallottine Fathers are assigning a priest to lead these two parishes, and I am sure the parishioners will work collaboratively with their new pastor to ensure a smooth transition.”

Father Paul D. Seil explores Buffalo on monthly cooking show
Wednesday, August 05, 2015 by Daybreak TV Productions

On this month’s encore performance of “Our Daily Bread,” Father Paul D. Seil, show host and pastor of St. Bernadette Parish, Orchard Park, explores Buffalo and the changes that have taken place over the past few years. Tune in on Saturday, Aug. 8, at 5:30 a.m. and noon on WKBW-TV Channel 7. “Our Daily Bread,” a monthly cooking show, is produced by Daybreak TV Productions of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo.

Father Seil begins the show strolling through Canalside, located in the city’s downtown corridor, at the intersection of Pearl Street and Marine Drive. With the revitalization of the harbor comes the onset of outdoor family fun activities such as concerts, bike riding, kayaking, yoga classes and much more.

Father Seil then sets up a cooking area in the small green space next to St. Joseph Cathedral, 50 Franklin Street, and prepares grilled breakfast burritos for the Daybreak crew. Cathedral Rector Father Peter Drilling stops by to chat with Father Seil before Mass.

Peg Overdorf, community advocate and executive director of Valley Community Association, an organization that assists families with a variety of services and promotes community togetherness, visits with Father Seil while he prepares a grille romaine and shrimp salad outside of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Buffalo’s Old First Ward.
