Final Fridays


Happy Priestly Ordination Anniversary, Fr. Dave! Thank you for the gift of your priesthood and for your yes to God! I am praying for you. 🙏
We're Here 1/25/2019!
I am here if anyone wants to eat Chick FilA and talk National Dialogue. If the weather is a concern, we certainly understand!
For tomorrow's co-event are details from David Klimchuk that he had asked me to post:" We will be going to 430 mass with Fr. Dave first and then my parent's address is 8258 Maple Rd Akron ny 14001. And it's a potluck!"
Waiting for a delicious meal!
Thanks Brad for cooking for us!! :)

Young Adult Ministry led by Fr. Dave Baker For young adults ages 18 - 39, offering a wide variety of Catholic experiences- social, scriptural, and prayerful.

Meet other young Catholic adults, make some friends, and have some fun!

Merry Christmas still! Four days left of this joyful season, and we're still blinging the poinsettias at St. Teresa's.

Watch this space for 2019 events - Jan. & Feb. posting tonight...


Deacon Ron is getting into the routine in his first month here. Come meet and pray with him, this Friday, at our All Saints Prayer & Cider Social!
That cider will be warm & mulled. Mmmmmmmm...


Once again, BIG news from Final Fridays! We are thrilled to welcome newly-ordained **Deacon Ron Adamczak** to our parish in Akron!

The even BIGGER news is that Deacon Ron's Ministry of Charity is with the Diocesan Department of Young Adults. He feels a spiritual calling to work and pray with all of you!

Come and meet Deacon Ron at our October Event: All Saints Prayer & Cider Social !

**Deacon Ron and his wife Sue are pictured below as he received the Book of the Gospels from our bishop at the ordination.

Is this baklava or basbousa? Come learn the difference (and try them both!) at our August event, the 10th Annual Egyptian Festival at St.Mary & St.Moses this Friday at the Coptic Church in Tonawanda, corner of Wheatfield & Payne Ave.


Fr. Dave was there! And not a priest yet, just a lowly seminarian. Seeing Pope John Paul II really inspired him.

Way back in 2002, a large contingent of Buffalo pilgrims enjoyed a send-off Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral-Buffalo before heading to Toronto for World Youth Day celebrations! Enjoy your Throwback Thursday.


St. Teresa's was represented at another Mass on the Move! Always good to see our neighbors in Corfu/E.Pembroke and old friends from the southtowns.

Final installment of #Massonthemove! Went out to visit Fr Dan Serbicki tonight in Corfu and Fr Dave Baker showed up, too! Can’t thank our priests enough for all they’ve done and continue to do for us! #latergram #qofhcollegelife


It's festival season! Our July and August events just posted! Come with us and experience the worldwide diversity of the Church, right here in Williamsville and Tonawanda.

Next Friday, July 27th, 7 p.m. meet at the side entrance of St. John Maron's church on Wehrle Drive (next to ECC North).

We are proud to be the choice printer for the upcoming Lebanese Festival on July 27th, 28th & 29th. Come join us for this fun filled event of traditional Lebanese culture, customs, cuisine, and music. Delft Printing is excited to sponsor this local event! For more information visit:

The Passion of the Lord- Stations of the Cross

Myrrh is mine; it's bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom.
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in the stone cold tomb.

If you haven't found time for Stations of the Cross yet, here's a four minute version from Buffalo's Daybreak TV Productions.

The Passion of the Lord depicted in the beautiful Stations of the Cross from St. Adalbert's Church, Buffalo, NY. The stations of the cross are a series of im...
