God Bless the 600 kids plus who came to have a wonderful time. We thank the parishioners from saint lawrence church, saint mary’s church in Cattaraugus and our wonderful staff at Saint Lawrence church for making Feed The kids Day a big success.
At Saint Francis Nursing Home today in Williamsville, New York, it was Buffalo Police Sweater Day. Residents were given a BPD Sweater. One of the residents wanted to know if wearing his sweater will get him out of a wheelchair speeding ticket!!!
Father Joe wishes to thank First Impressions Apparel, Mrs. Michelle Derenda, Family & Friends for their help.
On February 10, 2012, parishioners at Saint Lawrence Church Blessed puppy “Copper Thomas” as he was given to one of our parishioners who has cancer.
