We are gathering in person each week at 11 a.m. for worship and hosting community programs to help offer love and support for our neighbors. We continue to follow protocols of wearing masks and distancing – an outward sign of our care for each other.
The mission of the church also continues through the Genesis Center, adjacent to the church building, on Seneca Street, as we provide food support for our South Buffalo community. Regular community meals – Mondays and Wednesdays, 4-6 p.m., and Saturdays, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. – are being served as takeout from the back of the center. Food pantry distributions take place on Thursdays and emergency support continues to be provided. In this past year-plus, we have been adapting to new procedures and needs, while continuing our primary mission: to share God’s love through support for neighbors in need.
Please support the ministry of St. Simon’s and the Genesis Center. You may contribute online, directing funds to the church and/or the community center, or mail donations to St. Simon’s at 200 Cazenovia, Buffalo, NY 14210.
For in-person worship, please plan to arrive about 5 minutes before our 11 a.m. start time. This gives everyone an opportunity to hear brief announcements and take a moment to prepare for worship. The worship service includes Holy Communion and lasts about 45 minutes.
• For updates on worship, as well as programs and events in our common life, you are encouraged to send a message to receive our weekly, emailed newsletter.
• An online worship service is offered at 9 a.m. each Sunday, through our diocesan partnership. (You’ll see Mother Twila on that most Sundays.) For information on that service and to sign up for a regular email link, contact Mother Twila.
• The readings for each week are available here.
St. Simon’s is an Episcopal community of faith in South Buffalo, striving to live into the mission God has called us to by loving and caring for our neighbors. Come and pray, come and serve.
