"OPERATION BUFFALO" is a diocesan-wide project to revitalize Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church in Buffalo NY.  The first step will be to prepare the parish rectory and Church for the assignment of a full-time priest. This will be a "good fruit" made possible by the VISION FOR OUR FUTURE through financial assistance provided by Distinguished Diocesan Benefactors dedicated to "support for existing parishes."

There's work to be done!  We'll begin on MONDAY, AUGUST 1st and work daily through SATURDAY, AUGUST 13th.  Willing hearts-and-hands are needed to clean, repair, and prepare the way for the building up of Saints Peter and Paul parish.  A plan of action will be developed by a professional building contractor.  Materials will be obtained and pre-positioned on-site so volunteers will have everything they need to get the job done.  Supervision will ensure that the talents of volunteers are put to best use and their time is productive.  God willing, shortly after OPERATION BUFFALO concludes the parish will welcome their new pastor and begin a new page in their life of service to Christ and His Holy Church.

"Because of declining membership, an aged population and limited funds over the past few years, much of the parish complex has fallen into disrepair. This diocesan-wide appeal for willing and able workers to help restore whatever they can will go a long way in ensuring the future of the community."

 ~ Bishop Michael ~

We're looking for volunteers to accomplish OPERATION BUFFALO.  Any adult 18 years of age or older is invited to participate. Whether you can offer one day, two days, a week or more ... your efforts will be truly appreciated and essential to the success of this ambitious project.  Overnight accommodations for 8 men are available by reservation.
