You enter this church...not as a stranger but as a guest of God. He is your heavenly Father. Come, then, with joy in your heart and thanks on your lips into His presence, offering Him your love & service. Be grateful to the strong ones, who in the name of Jesus Christ, built this place of worship , and to all who have beautified it and hallowed it with their prayers and praise. Keep in mind our founders who under the leadership of Mgsr. Edmund J. Dietzel saw a bright future for the people of West Seneca & Orchard Park. Ask Gods blessing on those who love his house of faith as the inspiration of their labor, rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit. And may that blessing rest on you, both on your going out and your coming in.
