The Mission of the 
Holy Spirit Parish Community


As a family of the Holy Spirit Parish community, we welcome all to our home, Christ's home.  Our journey in Faith brings us together through prayer.  Eucharist celebration, support, love and caring.  

We commit to give generously of ourselves, our time, and talent to one another and to all in our neighborhood.

     May the Holy Spirit guide and comfort us in our never ending journey for peace and strength as witnesses of God's goodness.

Priest: Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.

Congregation: And kindle in them the fire of your love.

Priest: Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.

Congregation: And you will renew the face of the earth.

Priest and Congregation:

O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful,  grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy his consolations.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Welcome to Holy Spirit Church

We would like to welcome all who have recently joined Holy Spirit Parish.

If you would like to register please call the rectory (716)875-8102

we are able to live stream every mass down into the church hall.

This will allow social distancing so that more people can attend the masses. 

Fr. Joe and the Eucharistic ministers will bring communion down stairs after communion is received in the church.

Even though things are starting to open up, keeping everyone safe is still at the top of our priority list.  WE will still be sanitizing the church after each mass.


Thank you to all the Volunteers that help us after each mass.

And those who volunteer to help out after a funeral or wedding!

Your help is Greatly Appreciated!!!
