Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

 

From The Pastor

Dear Friends –
Isn’t it hard to believe that this weekend we are already celebrating the feast of Christ the King? Where did the Church year go? As we honor our Lord and Savior this weekend, we ponder all the gifts he has given us, despite the pandemic, world events and so on. Do we ponder more of the woes of the passing world or do we ponder Christ our King in all His majesty? Let’s take time this
week to meditate on Christ our King, and how we are going to welcome Him into our homes, our lives, and our hearts as once again in a few weeks as commemorate His birth.                              
This week in our nation we celebrate Thanksgiving. In addition to pondering Christ our King, we ask ourselves, are we truly thankful? Thank God for all the good gifts He provides for us. Let me take this time to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
God’s blessings,
Fr Mike 

Buffalo Catholic Schools Memo


To: Fr. Mike Brown, Pastor of St. Christopher
From: Dr. Tim Uhl, Secretary of Education
Date: November 23, 2021


I am writing this memo to congratulate you on the appointment of Denise
Cronyn as the new principal at St. Christopher. I know that the school has been
through quite a bit of turmoil over the past few years and I believe Denise will
be a great leader for the school.
As a certified administrator with experience in Catholic schools, Denise will bring
a variety of skills and experience to bear. The school community needs stability
and healing after the controversies of the past few years. The faculty and staff
needs a champion who will advocate for them. I believe that Denise will fill
those roles.
When I presented an opportunity to her last week for an “Emerging Leaders”
institute for up-and-coming Catholic school principals, she pounced. I was
pleasantly surprised to see her embrace the opportunity. Our office will be here
to support and mentor her and I believe she has the right mindset to learn
what’s important.
No principal is perfect on Day 1. I hope the parents will support her; I hope the
faculty and staff will support her; and I know you will be supportive of her as she
learns the community and becomes the best principal she can be. During these
difficult pandemic times, a little grace and kindness go a long way.

I am excited for the future of St. Christopher School. Feel free to share this
memo with your community.

 

Congratulations to our $50 Halloween Winner:

A MOVEMENT TO RESTORE TRUST IN THE DIOCESE OF BUFFALO

An organization of independent  concerned, committed Catholics in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo has been formed to assert the laity’s rightful role in the Church and to help lead a movement to restore trust and confidence in the Church in the wake of the shocking disclosures about the Diocese’s handling of sex abuse cases involving clergy in Buffalo.
