Welcome to the Diocese of Buffalo


We hope you will find our website informative and easy to use. It contains information about our diverse diocese, including evangelization, outreach initiatives and our diocesan departments.  You will also find parish listings, ministries and other diocesan Directory information.  It is the definitive guide to the Catholic Church in Western New York with contact information for parishes, priests, women and men religious, schools, Catholic hospitals, and much more. Throughout the eight counties of Western New York, the diocese is present to nearly 600,000 Catholics through our parishes, seminary, Catholic schools and a Catholic health system that revels in the healing love of Jesus to those in need.  For more than 170 years, the Diocese of Buffalo has been working to build God's kingdom on earth.

Most Rev. Richard J. Malone, Bishop of Buffalo
