TAKING PLACE AT OUR FAMILY OF PARISHES DURING LENT:
Centering Prayer at Saint Katharine Drexel 10-10:30, Fridays during Lent
What is Centering Prayer? Briefly, Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. (from http://www.centeringprayer.com/)
Gorzkie Zale (Bitter Lamentations) Sundays at 1 p.m. at St Stan’s and at 3 p.m. at St. John Gualbert.
Stations of the Cross Fridays at Saint John Gaulbert, Saint Stanislaus and Corpus Christi at 6 p.m. (Saint Stan’s and Corpus Christi alternate weeks between Polish and English).
News on the Lyceum from the Developer: Community Services for Every1
Apartments at the Lyceum Project Breaks Ground
The project involves the renovation of the historic St. John Kanty Lyceum building at 97 Swinburne Street in East Buffalo’s Broadway Fillmore district, as well as ten adjacent lots. The school’s classroom and offices will be transformed into 42 affordable apartments, with 12 apartments reserved for households in need of supportive services. These residents will have access to rental subsidies and services funded through the Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative and administered by the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance. Community Services for Every1 will provide services such as case management, financial counseling, workforce development, and referrals to health, childcare and public benefit services.
The existing kitchen, cafeteria and activity room of the building will be renovated into 7,600 square feet of community space for afterschool programming, culinary arts/healthy eating education, and independent living and job readiness training services to both future residents and members of the surrounding neighborhood, to be known at The Lyceum Community Empowerment Center. Operated by CSE1, these services will be focused on assisting adults and children with developmental disabilities. The St. John Kanty Parish will sublease a portion of the space for parish activities.
The total development costs are projected at $23.1 MM and are financed utilizing the following resources: $14.7 million in private equity from the sale of NYS HCR 9% Low-Income Housing Tax Credits and Federal and State Historic Tax Credits; NYS HCR Housing Trust Fund and Community Investment Fund subsidies; City of Buffalo HOME funds; OTDA HHAP funds; a CSE1 sponsor loan; and NYS HCR Clean Energy Incentive funds.
