From Father Michael's Desk

Road to Renewal Update


The Diocese of Buffalo is recommending the merger of Blessed Sacrament and St. Paul parishes, with Blessed Sacrament closing. It was previously announced that St. Andrew Parish would close on June 30. Friday's (June 7, 2024) recommendation has St. Andrew's merging with St. Timothy Parish. There are no other recommended changes for our parish family. I have been provided with detailed materials to lead conversations within our family. We can accept the diocese's recommendation or come up with one of our own. I will keep you updated when we determine the next steps.

I know these are uncertain and difficult times for many of you. To lose a beloved parish can be hard to accept. I am journeying together with all of you and I thank you for your understanding as we move forward as a parish family.

In Christ,

Fr. Michael

Make Your Donation to St. John's Online

You can manage your giving to St. John the Baptist Parish ONLINE using a credit/debit card. It is easy and allows you to set up automatic recurring contributions. This will help your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis when travel, illness, or other circumstances prevent you from attending Mass.

PLEASE NOTE: 

If you sign up for a recurring donation, your weekly envelope mailing will be canceled (saving us the cost of these mailings is one of the many benefits of joining this program.) However, this change process submitted to our Envelope Supplier may take up to two to four months to take place. Therefore, you may still receive envelopes sent to your home for several months until the mailing cancellation has been processed.

If you are planning to use this program periodically to select Non-Recurring, Special Collections, or Specific Donations, you will still receive parish envelope packets mailed to your home. If you no longer wish to receive the Envelope Packet Mailing to your home, please call the Rectory Office at 716-873-1122 to cancel your envelopes.

To get started, click here, then select Create Profile to the right.

Simply follow the on-screen instructions to create a profile and to schedule your contributions. Any questions, please contact Luis Clay at stjohnsfinance2017@gmail.com

Thank you for your generous support!
