St John Kanty Museum to open in Parish Center. Two rooms in the former Convent are being prepared (plaster repair and repainting) to display memorabilia that was discovered in the Rectory this past summer by Deacon Rick and his wife Cher. They spent lots of hours going through the Rectory from basement to attic to clean up/clean out and re-purpose many years of ‘stuff’ from the past. As soon as the rooms are ready the task of displaying the items will be undertaken. Anyone wishing to help with this project is asked to leave a message on the Anniversary ‘hotline’: 716/253-1160.
