ANNUAL TRIDUUM TO SAINT ANNE TO TAKE PLACE JULY 21, 22 and 23.
We invite you to join us to celebrate our annual Triduum to Saint Anne:
Friday, July 21 at 12:15 p.m. celebrated by Fr Walter Matuszak
Saturday, July 22 at 4 p.m. celebrated by Fr Michael Burzynski

The Mass ending our year long 125th Anniversary celebration will take place at 1 p.m. on Sunday, November 19, 2017. Bishop Richard Malone will be the principal celebrant, assisted by clergy who have graduated from Saint John Kanty School. Immediately following Mass hors d’oeuvres, dinner and entertainment by Rare Vintage will take place at The Millennium Buffalo on Walden Avenue, Cheektowaga. Tickets for the banquet will go on sale in early September and will be available in church, from the office, or via Pay Pal on the church website (www.saintjohnkanty.com). The ticket cost is $40.00, and it has been the objective of the Anniversary Committee from its first meeting In April 2016 to keep the ticket cost reasonable while still presenting a quality and memorable event. Through fundraisers earmarked for the Anniversary as well as advertising in the program booklet, the Committee feels their objective has been met. WHAT YOU CAN DO TO MAKE THE MASS AND DINNER AN EVENT TO REMEMBER IS SPREAD THE WORD TO FAMILY – FRIENDS – CLASSMATES AND ACQUAINTANCES WHO HAVE A PAST CONNECTION TO SJK AND WHO MAY BE INTERESTED IN RETURNING NOT ONLY FOR THE MASS BUT FOR AN EVENING OF REMINISCING, GOOD FOOD AND DANCING!
SAVE THE DATE: SEPTEMBER 17! We will again be having an afternoon of fun at our 3rd Meat Raffle at the Matthew Glab Post, 1965 Abbott Road, Lackawanna, NY. Never attended a meat raffle? You are missing out on a good time!! Further details to follow in August’s newsletter…
