In the Fourth Century, St. Ambrose of Milan used a beautiful title for the Blessed Virgin Mary: “Mother of the Church.” This title was officially used by Pope St. Paul VI during the Second Vatican Council.
In 2018, Pope Francis added a new feast to the Roman Calendar to be celebrated on the Monday after Pentecost: the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church.
What does this title mean? What does it mean that Mary is the Mother of the Church? A very good outline can be found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, par. 963-975. She is united with her Son, the prayer of the Church is devoted to her, and she is the vision of our future.
Help us make this years’ event a huge success! The planning stages are in progress, so it is not too late to bring your suggestions and ideas to our next meeting on May 7 at 6:30pm in the McCabe Rm.! To work towards another successful event, we will need crafts, baked goods, children’s prizes, auction items, theme baskets, and most of all… YOU! Please consider volunteering in some way. Students in need of Community Service Hours are more than welcome to join in. Call the Parish Office to become a part of this exciting day!

The Catholic Charities Appeal continues. The 2019 Appeal in support of Catholic Charities of Buffalo and the Fund for the Faith is in its final weeks. Make a gift for mom. She has made a tremendous impact on you. Now you can make a tremendous impact in the lives of others in her honor. On Friday, May 17, donations made to the Catholic Charities 2019 Appeal will be matched dollar for dollar during Hope Day. A gift for mom. A gift for others. Help your neighbor find hope. Visit www.give.ccwny.org/hope on May 17. Please support the annual Appeal. We have collected $30,780 or 88% towards this year’s parish goal of $35,000.
Our 10:30 Mass can be streamed at anytime in the McCabe Room. Please be sure to contact the office ahead of time so the equipment can be set up.
An elevator and nearby rest room make this an option for those who wish to attend Mass but have difficulty getting into the church.
Rather than miss Mass because of active little ones, parents may wish to bring their youngsters to the Resource Room where they can share in the service with them without the constraints of a pew. There is room to move around and a library of children's bible stories for them to enjoy.
All are welcome. Please suggest this to family and friends who may be looking for an opportunity, even temporarily, to attend Mass at Holy Family.
