Today, the people throughout Western New York are the beneficiaries and powerful legacy of faith and models of service.  We are commissioned through our baptism to continue to deepen our own faith, share and witness that faith to others, and serve one another.  We are called to continue and pass on our heritage of faith and service to future generations.

real presence. real hope. real mission.
