We are one human family whatever our national, racial, ethnic, economic and ideological differences. Catholic social teaching proclaims that we are our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers, wherever they live. We are called to work globally for justice and to recognize that “loving our neighbor” has global dimensions in an interdependent world.
Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat is a faith-based organization that builds, remodels and sells houses to qualified home buyers who do “sweat equity” on the construction of their future home. Members of the parish Habitat Team volunteer on the 1st & 3rd Saturday of each month at the Habitat site where a crew supervisor directs the work of the volunteers. No skills are required.
Refugee and Immigration Committee
This committee provides legal updates regarding U.S. immigration law and policy. They also examine the needs of the agencies serving the refugee/immigrant community in WNY to determine how we as a congregation might collaborate with these organizations in providing assistance to people who are refugees and immigrants.
