       DO NOT PARK! 

We are asking everyone please DO NOT PARK in the circle at the main entrance! That area is a turn-around, not a parking area.  In case of a medical emergency, first responder vehicles need access and mustn't be blocked. In addition, we ask that you do not park in the Handicapped area closest to the Rectory or in the large spot in front of the St. Vincent DePaul Donation Box.  Family Promise has a very large van that is best accommodated in that spot. Thank you!



              


      The mission of Family Promise of Western New York is to unite religious and other organizations in responding to the needs of homeless families in our community. Uniting heart and hands of all denominations, the network provides a way for homeless families to receive temporary shelter, meals, and assistance while seeking their own independence. It's more than providing shelter, meals and support. This means that we are keeping entire families together while they work toward finding a home to call their own.
      You don't have to be a member of Ss. Columba-Brigid Parish to get involved.  If this is of interest to you, there are many ways to get involved with the work of Family Promise.  Some of them would only take up a couple of hours of your time, one single time, during a family's stay.  That is not too much to ask.  If you think that you could do even one  simple, yet God-like, task to help our visiting families in the future, please let us know.
To volunteer or if you want more information, go to  http://www.fpwny.org  
                                           

The St. Vincent de Paul Society has installed a clothing bin for our parish which is located in the parking lot off Hickory St. It is placed to the right of the entrance to the old Parish Center.  This is a CLOTHING ONLY bin and no other material of any kind should be placed inside.  Clothing should be packed in a plastic bag or a small box.  Its intended use is for our parish only and not for public use.  Clothing will be picked up weekly by the St. Vincent de Paul trucks.  In addition, their trucks will still continue to pick up appliances and household goods at home visits, but will no longer make a special visit for clothing only.

Perhaps you noticed that we have a banner at church. This is a way to create a united community out of these five parishes and to connect more than we've ever been.
