Church group played big role in walkway

Recently a Buffalo News article related the fact that an agreement was reached between the City of Lackawanna and Delta Development to provide a walkway, crosswalk and appropriate signage to protect the safety of senior citizens who live in the Victory Ridge Apartments. There was a missing fact in the story. An important part of the story was that an inter-parish social justice committee from three Catholic parishes in Lackawanna had been working since last January to advance this effort on behalf of these citizens. The committee members believed that this work was part of the church’s mission to work for justice in the larger community and, in doing so, to bring the values of the gospel to the world.
