Because of your generosity, Our Lady of Angels Association is able to provide assistance to programs such as Learn and Serve.
The Learn and Serve program, under the direction of Fran Boltz, supports numerous educational and charitable organizations in the Niagara Falls area. The program transports students to sites where they work with community members in an area that may become their life profession. They also bring groups of school-age students to the University, work with the elderly, and with adults living with disabilities. Funding to the Learn and Serve program would give them the capacity to expand its program for more after hour activities and transportation expenses. Local hospitals, the Boys and Girls Club, Habitat and many advocacy programs benefit from the Learn and Serve program at Niagara University.

Two Saints For Niagara?
Venerable Servants of God Nelson H. Baker and Michael J. McGivney Continue Their Process Towards Sainthood

It’s a trick question: the answer is “none”. While the United States celebrates St. John Neumann as one of our own (he was born in Bohemia, and served at parishes in both Niagara Falls and Buffalo), and we do have some home-grown women saints such as Katherine Drexel, Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton, and Kateri Tekakwitha—as well as the naturalized St. Frances Mother Cabrini—no American-born male has yet been canonized.
However, that may—may—be about to change: two Niagara Men—one an alum, the other a transfer—have been both declared “Venerable Servants of God”, which puts them just one step away from being declared “Blessed” (beatified), and two steps away from the ultimate goal of any Catholic-Christian: Sainthood (Canonization).
But perhaps the most mind-bending part of this is that both men attended Niagara University’s Our Lady of the Angels Seminary at the same time! Indeed, it is even possible, though unlikely, that they may have been classmates. Read more…
