The February 2017 edition of the Western New York Catholic is available to read online. The new issue features stories about this year's Catholic Charities Appeal, a final chapter for the former St. Gerard Church, one person's road to Catholicism, remembering Sister Maria Pares, OSF, and much, much more. You can also get a jump start on Lent with our annual supplement, which includes stories about how you can deepen your faith during the season to advertising local fish frys.
