We WITNESS to our faith by ministering to everyone, especially those who are poor, alienated or oppressed.
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 was the first pastor of this parish family.
