Rest in peace, Bishop Edward Kmiec

We pray for the repose of the soul of Bishop Edward Kmiec, the 13th Bishop of Buffalo, who entered into eternal life on Saturday, July 11th.  In Bishop Kmiec’s memory, we have placed a black and white mourning bunting that frames the front door entrance of the church. May he rest in peace in the arms of the one whom he served so faithfully throughout his priesthood.
