Bishop Edward Kmiec, the 13th Bishop of the Diocese of Buffalo died peacefully last night following a brief illness.
May his soul rest in peace.
“We commend to our loving and merciful Lord the devoted soul of our brother, Bishop Edward Kmiec.

Eucharistic Prayer to read during Communion
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
For registered parishioners, we humbly ask that you send in your weekly offertory envelope to St. Peter’s Rectory or enroll in on-line giving to aid us in day-to-day operations of our Parish and to continue to support our parish ministries. Thank you for your continued generosity!
