The Road to Renewal: Real Presence, Real Hope, Real Mission!
As many of you may know, the Road to Renewal is a journey of faith underway in our Diocese. The Catholic Faithful along with their priests, deacons, religious, parish administrators and school leaders are embarking on a journey to reinvigorate Catholic faith, more fully optimize parish and diocesan resources, and increase the impact of our varied ministries throughout Western New York. You can read much more about the Road to Renewal at this link: https://roadtorenewal.org/
Saint John Kanty/Saint Adalbert Parish Community and the Parish Community of Saint Katharine Drexel, along with Corpus Christi, Saint Stanislaus and Saint John Gaulbert, have been designated a parish family that is planned to come together in October.
As an opportunity in starting our new family Fr Jim Monaco has agreed to step in and in addition to his responsibilities as pastor of St Katharine Drexel, become our new parish administrator. It is Fr. Jim’s hope that before becoming a part of the larger Family of Parishes, collaborating with four other parishes, that we take the short time we have and come together to reinvigorate our own St John Kanty/St Adalbert faith community and strengthen our own identity and friendships as a parish family.
Very often people have been consistent in their Mass attendance, so much so that sometimes the people at one mass very seldom ever see or even know the parishioners at another mass. In the future our goal will be to have one weekend mass to hopefully pull us all together, enliven our passion for the gospel, strengthen our parish identity and the love we have for our church, to then invite others to walk with us as Jesus’ disciples.
Fr Bob Stolinski will continue as the ‘morning man’ on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:30 a.m. as Fr. Jim can work out his schedule in how to best serve at two parishes. Please follow our weekly bulletin and website: www.saintjohnkanty.com, for updated information on our Road to Renewal family, as well as other news.

From the Chancery Mailing:
Want to learn more about the Mass? Come one, come all and discover the beauty and power of the Mass on March 17, May 19 and June 30 at 6:30 pm at St. Gregory the Great Church, 200 St. Gregory Ct., Williamsville. Our priests will take turns each month to explain the deeper meaning of the Mass. The Mass is central to our worship as Catholics ever since the Apostles walked the earth. Perhaps for some of us, the Mass may be a little too familiar or for others, not familiar enough. We come to Mass and we make the Sign of the Cross. We unconsciously go through the Catholic calisthenics of standing, sitting and kneeling. We know the responses by heart. But do we understand what all these prayers and rituals mean? We look forward to seeing you.

Be sure to look at our prayer list in the bulletin…there are many people to pray for!
