Loving God, we come to You,
standing together in faith,
ready to realize the freshness of a bold endeavor,

as we look to the future of our Church.

Building up the Kingdom of God on earth
is Your will and our privilege.
Bless our efforts with the energy and enthusiasm we need. 

Jesus, our Redeemer, encourage and guide us.
Open our hearts to be good stewards
because of our love for You.

Holy Spirit, our Sanctifier, empower us
to carry out Your will for the Upon This Rock campaign.

May Your Goodness be upon us,
And give us success to the work of our hands and hearts.

We ask Your blessing now and always
through Christ Our Lord.


Upon This Rock is a strategic initiative designed to immediately impact our parishes as well as reshape the way the Church funds key ministries and programs for the future. This mission will ensure our ability to continue to effectively carry out the Lord's mission of service. As a Catholic community, we are asked to come together to establish a robust culture of evangelization and stewardship, and a vibrant future throughout Western New York.

During this time, we look to you for prayer and support as we work towards reaching our goals. Please continue to visit for updates, news stories, and ways that you can support Upon This Rock.
