Remember your loved ones who have passed away, for special occasions (birthdays/anniversaries), and for those who are ill. Weekend and week day Masses are available. The Mass stipend is $15 per Mass. Please contact the rectory to schedule your intentions or you can click on this link: http://www.saintjohnkanty.com/mass-intentions/. You may also place your intentions, with the stipend amount, in the collection basket or mail in your intentions.
Weekday Masses are held in the church Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:30 a.m. with Fr Bob Stolinski. All are welcome to attend!
Be sure to look at our prayer list in the bulletin…there are so many people to pray for! Please remember to pray for those who you promised to, those who have no one to pray for them, and those requests that remain silent out of fear or embarrassment.
If you have a name to add to our parish prayer list, call the parish office during regular office hours (893-0412).

ST JOHN KANTY IN THE NEWS: In the September 3 issue of the Buffalo Magazine there is a story on Josef Mazur, written by his niece. Josef created the stained glass windows as well as the murals in our sanctuary. He was a very talented man, working not only as a stained glass artist and muralist, but also as a sculptor. Here is a link to the story telling more about Josef and listing other churches and institutions where his artwork can be seen: Art Hiding in Plain Sight: https://buffalo.com/community/art-hiding-in-plain-sight/article_b3cd51f6-0c23-11ec-8e27-3faeac190b41.html
