14 Holy Helpers Parish


Welcome to Fourteen Holy Helpers!


Pastoral Letter
On Wednesday, August 14 a Pastoral Letter was mailed out from our Rectory to all 14 Holy Helpers Parishioners.  During a period of great stress in our Church, and in the Diocese of Buffalo in particular, Father David wants to reassure us that we are not alone in trying to cope and understand what is happening around us.  He offers some ideas to help us cope.

If you did not receive the letter you may read it online at this website … Pastoral Letter of August 14, 2019.  To make sure that you receive copies of parish communications,  please contact the Rectory at (716) 674-2374 to make sure that you addresses are current. 

Parish Survey
We want to understand how we can improve our parish.  Collecting your feedback as to what is right and wrong with our parish … what you want us to improve and how our leadership can improve their communications to you … what you feel about the sexual abuse allegations against the clergy … all are important to us, if they are important to you.

To gather your feedback we have developed a short survey.  You can fill out that survey online at the following link … Parish Survey link.   You can print out a paper copy of the survey … Parish Survey paper copy with instructions for submitting it included on the copy.  You will also be receiving a pastoral letter from Fr. David which will include a paper copy as well.

Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts on some important topics to our parish.  We welcome hearing from every member of our parish family.  Tell us the good and the bad.  We want to improve.
