Open Announcement to the Parishioners of

SS. Peter & Paul Roman Catholic Church


After receiving an abuse complaint against Rev. Mark J. Wolski, Bishop Richard J. Malone has placed Father Wolski on administrative leave as an investigation continues.

We are very shocked and saddened to hear this news. Father Wolski has been retired from SS. Peter & Paul Parish for six years, where he served as Pastor.

At this time we do not have any more information other than what was released through the Diocese of Buffalo.

Please note that this administrative leave is for the purpose of investigation and does not imply any determination as to the truth or falsity of the complaint.

Let us continue to pray for healing for all of us, especially victims of such abuse. As well as for Fr. Wolski and his family.


We encourage anyone who has concerns or is dealing with similar experiences of abuse to contact Jacqueline Joy, our Victim Assistance Coordinator (VAC) for the Diocese of Buffalo, at (716) 895-3010. 


Rev. Art Mattulke, Pastor

Pass the Chalice:
This chalice pass is an awesome way to bring families together for prayer and at the same time bring an awareness of the need of vocations to the priesthood. Those families wishing to share in this great experience, may sign up near the Baptismal font near the Main St. door.  Please leave your first & last name for the week you will be receiving the Chalice.

This is the process by which people become members of the Roman Catholic Church. It is a conversion journey concerned with the total formation of the individual and the believing Church community. This journey includes a team and sponsors who, acting as representatives of the larger Church community, accompany the candidate through the various stages of the Rite. The process culminates with the celebration of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. Contact the rectory to sign-up

Baptisms: The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated each Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Pre-Baptismal instruction for parents is conducted on the fourth Monday of every month at 7 p.m. in the St. Francis Chapel. Attendance at the Pre-Baptismal class is mandatory for first time parents. Contact the rectory for an appointment.

Sacrament of the Sick: Please inform the parish priests about parishioners confined to their homes, hospitals, or nursing facilities. The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick and the Eucharist are meant for the healing and comfort of those who are ill.

Letters of Reccomendation: Letter of Recommendation—IMPORTANT: Recommendations to act as Sponsors of Baptism or Confirmation are issued to registered parishioners who are attending Mass and received Holy Communion regularly, have their children attending a Catholic school or Religious Education class, if married, have entered a ceremony performed in conformity with the regulations of the Catholic Church.  Church Law requires that a Sponsor for Baptism or Confirmation be confirmed and we are not permitted to make exceptions to this rule. 

Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession): Saturday from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. Confessions are also heard by appointment, in the rectory. Please call 649-2765 to ask when a priest is available.

Marriages: You must be an active parishioner for at least six months prior to setting a date. Engaged couples should contact one of the parish priests before making other wedding arrangements. Couples are required to attend a Pre-Cana Conference, or equivalent pre-marital preparation program. Please call 649-2765 to schedule arrangements with one of the priests.

Parish Outreach: Outreach is located at 36 Pine Street. Our Parish Outreach services are available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Social services are provided for those in need.
