This year we are planning the 11th version of our annual summer festival … Summerfest 2022. Summerfest at 14 Holy Helpers is a wonderful summer celebration of entertainment, food, games, and fellowship.
Do you enjoy meeting with friends and family on a summer evening enjoying the music of the top festival bands in WNY? Nobody does it better than Summerfest at 14 Holy Helpers.
Do you enjoy taking a chance at winning more than $7,000 in cash prizes, filling your home freezer with meat and seafood that you won at our Meat Raffle, taking home a theme basket from a selection of over 175 baskets, winning bags of groceries and snacks at our ticket games in the Parish hall? Come to Summerfest at 14 Holy Helpers for the thrill of the game.
Do you enjoy dinners like homemade BBQ hamburgers along with picked that day corn on the cob, tender chicken parmigiana blanketed with a coating of melted mozzarella accompanied by penne pasta in a rich tomato marinara sauce, or generous, freshly made Polish Platters including the traditional favorites like golombki, kielbasa, pierogi, and kapusta? We think that the best church festival dinners in WNY are available from Summerfest at 14 Holy Helpers.
Many more details and links to buy your Meat Raffle admission tickets, dinners, and theme basket sheets are found at … Summerfest 2022 LINK.

Chapel up High
A Eucharistic chapel has been organized at 14 Holy Helpers to make it easy for you to be in the presence of our risen Lord while maintaining social distancing precautions. A consecrated Eucharist has been placed in a monstrance in the sun room on the second floor of the Rectory. This new chapel is available for you to stop by in the parking lot to spend a little time with Jesus and say a prayer in the privacy and safety of your car. This chapel will be lit for easy viewing so you may stop by the parking lot at any time during the day or night. There will be no inside access, so use your car, and PLEASE respect social distancing norms to help stop the spread of the virus.
Fr. David has set up a Prayer Line phone number … (716) 675-2592 … accessible 24 hours per day. He records a few prayers and gives us a few thoughts to help us deal with these difficult times. The prayers are periodically changed so call for the new prayer whenever you need to “pray with a friend”.
Support those who Support Us
We have been blessed to enjoy the support of our local business community over the past year. They have provided our parish, and the events and services we produce, with money, products, and services donations. Through their generous donations we have been able to generate needed revenue to work toward our mission and serve the local community.
Due to the recent coronavirus health crisis, many businesses have been forced to either temporarily close or operate in a restricted environment. Even those not as directly impacted have had to operate in a new world of social distancing, working environment cleansings, or managing a remote work force. Our supporting businesses stood up to help 14 Holy Helpers when we called … Businesses that Support 14 Holy Helpers LINK. Please consider supporting them with your patronage when you are in need of the goods or services that they provide to the community. Thank them and let them know that 14 Holy Helpers appreciates their support.
