You may not think of Jamestown, NY, as an urban center, but it is the larger of the two cities in Chautauqua County. Jamestown also has a significant population of people who are homeless, who suffer from chronic mental health issues, or who lack the skills to obtain a job that pays more than minimum wage.
St. Luke's Episcopal Church, located right in the heart of downtown Jamestown, regularly opens its doors to this population of people who do not often see a friendly face.

Yesterday morning residents of Randolph, NY, awoke to a village-wide rash of vandalism. Buildings had been spray painted with graffiti—some malicious and some an apparent cry for help.
Across the side of Grace Episcopal Church was painted a question of the second type: "Can I still get to heaven if I kill myself."
Police agencies from Western New York and Southern Ontario will honor the memories of law enforcement personnel who gave their lives in the line of duty during the 16th Annual Niagara County Police Appreciation Day Interfaith Memorial Service on Thursday, May 16. The service will begin at 7 p.m. at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 400 Ridge Street in Lewiston, New York.
Held during National Police Week, the service is a time to pay special recognition to law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
We need walkers (and bike riders, wheel chairs, walkers, strollers).
Calvary, Williamsville is the 2013 co-sponsor of Walk Off Hunger to be held on July 30, 2013. The event benefits the Food Bank of Western New York, and the more walkers we have, the more money we make for the Food Bank.
This is a call to all churches to get involved!
Let's take steps together to fight hunger in our community.
Let's see which church can have the most walkers or monetary donations.
In November 2006, the congregation of St. Patrick's, Cheektowaga, mourned the loss of parishioner Kathy Verdaasdonk, a 40-year-old wife and mother. That close encounter with the ravages of cancer prompted the congregation to sponsor Kathy's LIght, a team which participated in the 2007 American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. This year they will participate for the seventh straigh year.
"We did it to honor Kathy, her "can-do" attitude, and all the positive influences she had around St. Patrick's," reports warden Karen Gengo.
Buffalo, New York—The Episcopal Partnership for Mission and Outreach announced its annual campaign on Easter Sunday. The campaign runs throughout the fifty days of Easter.
