FROM OUR BISHOP
Strictly speaking, we are TWO parishes and ONE Catholic Family. In July of 2008, the Diocese of Buffalo, New York established the parish of Our Lady of Mercy from the merger of three parishes: St. Peter's and St. Joseph's Catholic Churches in LeRoy and St. Anthony Catholic Church in Lime Rock.

"The ancient belief in the communion of saints is belief in the spiritual solidarity which binds together the faithful on earth, the souls in purgatory, and the saints in heaven in the organic unity of the same mystical body under Christ its head, and in a constant interchange of supernatural offices.

The living, even if they do not belong to the body of the true Church, share in it according to the measure of their union with Christ and with the soul of the Church."
