A Message from Richard C. Suchan

As we enter the new year, as well as the home stretch for Upon This Rock, I want to thank you all for being such a blessing.
No matter how many fundraising events we’ve been involved in, the scope of Upon This Rock initially may have seemed staggering.  Many said it couldn’t be done. Upon This Rock isn’t over yet, but look how far we have come! I say “we” because your leadership and support have enabled us to reach this point.
Among numerous positive outcomes, Upon This Rock has bought us into personal contact with many of the faithful and generous souls in our community in ways we hadn’t had the opportunity to before this all got underway.  It also has connected many parishioners with one another in new ways.
I’m certain that you, like me, look forward to successfully wrapping up Upon This Rock later this year and to enjoying the fruits of our labors – enhanced funding for ministries, strengthened financial footing, and bold new initiatives to bring people back home to the Church.
To that end, I encourage you to listen to this special edition of our podcast with Bishop Malone and Upon This Rock’s Communications Coordinator, Cameron Garrity, who will discuss the incredible work that already has been done and how the campaign will continue moving forward.  
In closing, know of my prayers of gratitude and my wishes to each of you for a 2017 filled with peace, contentment, and the opportunity to develop a deeper and more intimate connection with our Lord Jesus.
All my best,

Richard C. Suchan, CEBS & CWS
Executive Director
The Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo

A Prayer for Upon This Rock

Loving God, we come to You,
standing together in faith,
ready to realize the freshness of a bold endeavor,
as we look to the future of our Church.

Building up the Kingdom of God on earth is Your will and our privilege.
Bless our efforts with the energy and enthusiasm we need. 

Jesus, our Redeemer,
encourage and guide us.
Open our hearts to be good stewards because of our love for You.

Holy Spirit, our Sanctifier,
empower us to carry out Your will for the Upon This Rock campaign.

May Your Goodness be upon us,
And give us success to the work of our hands and hearts.

We ask Your blessing now and always 
through Christ Our Lord.
