Diocese of Buffalo - Latest News

The 15th annual Catholic Education dinner will be held tonight, Jan. 29, at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center. The 2015 dinner will mark Bishop Richard Malone’s third year celebrating Catholic schools in the Diocese of Buffalo. Nearly 1,200 guests are expected to attend.

According to Richard C. Suchan, executive director of The Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo, this year’s dinner is undergoing a branding face-lift. “Formerly known as the ‘Making a Difference Dinner,’ the 2015 event will officially debut as ‘GALA 22:6’,” said Suchan. “The genesis of the new dinner title is rooted in Proverbs 22:6 – ‘Train up children in a way they should go, and when they are old, they will not depart from it,’ – which references the importance of educational formation in the lives of our young children.”

The dinner is the Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser for Catholic education. Proceeds will be used to fund needs-based tuition assistance for students attending Catholic elementary schools throughout the eight counties of Western New York. To date, $140,000 has been raised from this event.

Statement from Bishop Richard J. Malone
Thursday, January 22, 2015 by Office of Communications

Bishop Richard J. Malone released the following statement regarding the Education Investment Tax Credit:

“I am pleased that Governor Cuomo has included the Education Investment Tax Credit in his budget message and the Senate has approved the tax credit bill.

“We know too well the increasing financial burdens placed on families with children in Catholic schools, and families who want to send their children to Catholic schools. Enactment of the education investment tax credit is a game changer, providing families the option of a Catholic or private school education for their children.

“The tax credit would stabilize Catholic school enrollment, easing the pressure on tuition, resulting in financial savings to all families.

“The Diocese of Buffalo will continue to be at the forefront of advocacy efforts to get this legislation enacted. It is my hope that the EITC will become law during the current legislative session.”
