Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

From The Pastor:

 

My friends –

Knot of Indifference

In the book of Revelation we hear; ‘”I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.’”

The indifference and complacency found in our church, the lack of fire and zeal for the Gospel, the lack of interest in what young people can offer or are concerned about has caused many young people to walk away from their faith. Our response to this has been minimal, inadequate, at times critical, and we often times show disinterest in the real concerns of the young church. The knot of indifference represents a lukewarm church that is timid in its mission and proclamation of the Gospel.

Mary, Undoer of knots, pray for us

God’s best to all of you.

Fr Mike

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.
