Congregations throughout Western New York will celebrate the start of the new school year with special services in September. Students will receive a blessing, as will all those adults and youth who participate in any organization or program that begins anew in September. Students are encouraged to bring their backpacks to be blessed. Everyone in the community is most welcome to attend and celebrate a “fresh start”.
The Winged Ox Players are proud to present a comedy about kicking the bucket, tilling the soil, riding off into the sunset, the great slumber. The Death and Life of Everyman is a play by Patrick Rainville Dunn. The play is about a man (Everyman) who learns he has until the end of the play before he meets God face to face to be judged for his life. As his doom approaches, Everyman discovers that family, friends and fortune cannot accompany him and that even strength, beauty, intellect and emotion are no match for the Grim Reaper; yet faith, hope and charity prevail.
"Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself? I will with God's help. Will you strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being? I will with God's help."
We renew these promises every time there is a baptism or confirmation in our congregations. We commit ourselves to love our neighbors and respect the dignity of everyone.
A part of living into our Baptismal Covenant is committing ourselves to creating and supporting diversity and to ending racism in our communities and our congregations.

Recently, 25 people from St. Mark’s Orchard Park joined with their Muslim brothers and sisters at the Turkish Cultural Center in Buffalo to celebrate a community Iftar dinner. Iftar is the evening meal that Muslims partake in during the season Ramadan. The idea to join the dinner came from St. Mark’s parishioner Doug Robinson, who after reading Bishop Franklin’s pastoral letter wanted to take seriously the challenge to get outside our comfort zone to cross racial and ethnic boundaries. So, Doug invited his fellow parishioners to join him at the community Iftar dinner in Buffalo.
