WELCOME TO OUR FAITH FORMATION PAGE
OFFICE HOURS Will resume when New York “Pause” is lifted and we return to full services. Please feel free to call at anytime – I am working from home.
10AM – 2PM WEDNESDAYS IN ST CHARLES HALL
My name is Pat Dyer and I am the Pastoral Associate and Religious Education coordinator. I am married – you might see my husband with me on some Sundays or at events. I have five children – all grown and married as well as eight grandchildren – two of them live with us. I have a graduate degree in Pastoral Ministry from Christ the King Seminary and a graduate degree in Parent Child Health Nursing from SUNY at Stony Brook. I am certified by the Diocese of Buffalo as a catechetical leader. You may have seen me around the central city parishes as I have lived in Buffalo since 2001. I am new to Blessed Trinity so please stop by my office in St Charles Hall and introduce yourself. I’ll be there every Wednesday from 10AM to 2PM. Stop by to say “Hello” before or after masses every Sunday or the first Saturday of every month. You might also find me wondering around before BINGO starting in April. We’re developing lots of new things so check back here often. You can also call or e-mail if you have ideas or questions! I am enjoying meeting each and every one of you.
Volunteers are needed to support the programs here at Blessed Trinity. We will meet every two to three months to prepare lessons that will be used every week. Volunteers for this position do not need to meet the Protecting God’s Children requirement. No experience needed.
Other volunteers will be needed to provide classroom support for quarterly meetings of children beginning in September. Support for meeting the Protecting God’s Children requirement will be provided. If you like to work with kids, this position is for you.
