If you were not part of the Upon This Rock Campaign and would like to know more or to donate, please call Deacon Mike Lennon at the rectory, 1-716-487-0125.

Some parishioners have made donations for specific projects.  Examples are the Bell System, the 28 rectory window project and the Camera System.  All would not have been possible without your generous donations.

May God bless you for your generosity and prayers for all of you who are such a blessing to St James Parish.
