The Roman Catholic Diocese of eight counties of Western New York.
Proclaiming and Living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

1 8 4 7  –  2 0 2 2

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.

The Synod calls us to become a Church that gets up, one that is not turned in on itself, but capable of pressing forward, leaving behind its own prisons and setting out to meet the world, with the courage to open doors. Let’s walk together as a Church with the Holy Spirit. 


National Eucharistic Revival

Our world is hurting. We all need healing, yet many of us are separated from the very source of our strength. Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith—his Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist.
