ABOUT OUR CHURCH

St. Katharine Drexel Parish formed in October 2007 with  the joining of St.  Agnes, St. Francis of Assisi, and Visitation of the Blessed  Virgin Mary parishes which had been located in the Lovejoy area of Buffalo. The parish is founded on the site of the former St. Francis of Assisi Parish. Rev.  James M. Monaco is the current and first pastor of this parish family.
