Alumni Blast: June!

 Dear Grad of St John Kanty School,

June 2 is our annual Summer Festival/Chicken BBQ and Basket Raffle!

JOIN US FOR MASS AT 10:30 AND DON’T COOK TODAY! Come on down for our annual chicken BBQ, grilled up by BW’s! Also burgers and hot dogs! As always…eat in or take out! In addition to the chicken we will be serving our delicious homemade sides and dessert. Kanty’s Kitchen will be open from 11:30 a.m. until 4, or until sold out. Come on down for an afternoon of good food, friends, grocery bag raffle, toy table for the kids, a great basket raffle, 50-50 drawing, and more! 



Class of ’69 50 Year Reunion! Grads of the class have been getting together for many years and this year will gather for Mass at SJK at 4 p.m. on June 22 to celebrate 50 years!  They will continue their celebration with dinner at Kiebzak’s Restaurant. Sr Juanita is expected to attend Mass and dinner. 

It would be great to see some other alumni at this Mass, too!




There are openings for Mass intentions throughout the year. Masses can be offered for various intentions: For a deceased loved one, a family member, or a friend who has died as well as on the anniversary of the death of the deceased; to invoke the Lord’s special graces and blessings for a friend or loved one; to petition the Lord for the good health of someone who is ill or to pray for successful surgery and speedy recovery; to ask the Lord’s blessings for a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary; in thanksgiving for graces received by an individual. In this practice of devotion individuals provide an offering for a particular Mass intention. In the Diocese of Buffalo, $15 is the recommended offering per Mass intention.

To request a Mass Intention: Complete the form on this website (; call 716-893-0412 Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-noon (or leave a message); drop your intention in the collection basket; or visit the parish office.


A new feature on the home page of our website is the Parish Calendar, which you can see at this link: It lists upcoming events as well as society meetings. Some coming attractions not yet listed are our 3rd Annual Parishioner Appreciation Hot Dog Roast in July, our Meat Raffle in the September, and our Harvest Dinner in October. For those fans of Kanty’s pierogi and placek: we will be selling these items December 7-8 (this replaces our cookie sale), perfect timing for your Wigilia dinner!
