Over 600 requests for supplies will be filled throughout the Diocese of Buffalo, so students will be well equipped for the new school year next fall.

Encore for Evie - April 2018

   St. Stephen's Parish Players are staging an "Encore for Evie" performance of Disney's Lion King Jr. on this Friday, April 13th. Evie Baumler was one of the six year-old cubs in last week's performances. Evie's second open heart surgery was scheduled for Wednesday, April 11th at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, but was cancelled. Curtains go up at 7pm at St. Stephen School, 2080 Baseline Rd, with doors opening at 6:30. All seats are general admission and will be sold at the door. Suggested donation is $5 per person. All proceeds from this show will go towards helping little Evie's medical bills. Join us for an encore performance as we visit the Pridelands one more time and fight to make a difference for those, like our little lion cub Evie, who are living with a heart defect.

He said that last year nearly 153,000 people went to Catholic Charities for help in the eight counties of Western New York, 243 of them from Grand Island.
