Our Mission

The parishes of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Cheektowaga and Saint Bernard in Buffalo were linked together in the Fall of 2015, in accordance with the Journey in Faith & Grace. The parishes operate independently. Although with a great deal (and increasing instances) of collaboration.

While some day the parish councils may come together to write a joint Mission Statement, it may be difficult to improve on the one that we can find in Matthew:

Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world. Mt. 28: 19-20.
