***St. John Kanty Parish Community is grateful to those retired Diocesan priests and still working members of the Jesuit order for providing continuity to both daily and weekend Masses since we have been without a Pastor (October 2013). We remain hopeful that the Diocese of Buffalo will appoint a Pastor to SJK. We are a growing and vibrant community!***
Parish Membership: We welcome all visitors and ask that if you like what you see and hear to please contact the parish office to register. A parishioner is defined as someone who has completed a registration/census form, regularly attends Mass, and regularly supports the parish financially through the use of envelopes. It is necessary to be a registered and active parishioner in order to request the sacraments of Baptism, First Penance, First Holy Communion, Confirmation, and Marriage or to receive a letter of recommendation to serve as a Godparent or Confirmation Sponsor. We ask that anyone who is confirmed to please register ‘on your own’ rather than remain under your parents’ registration. The fact that you have been baptized, confirmed or married at SJK does not mean you are automatically registered as a parishioner. If you are moving away, we ask you to please contact the parish office so we can update our records.
Baptism: Call the parish office for an appointment and interview.
Marriage: Please consult with the Pastor/Deacon 6 to 12 months before setting a wedding date.
