OUR MISSION STATEMENT :

"Epiphany of Our Lord Parish is a Christ-centered Community which, through the grace of the Holy Eucharist and guidance of the Holy Spirit, strives for full, active, conscious participation in proclaiming and living the Good News of Jesus Christ."

 

Welcome to Epiphany of Our Lord Roman Catholic Parish Community in the hamlet of Langford within the town of North Collins, New York. Our Parish was established in October 2006 by the merger of St. Frances Cabrini (Collins Center), St. Martin of Tours (Langford), and St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception (New Oregon), all parishes in the Diocese of Buffalo in Western New York.  Visit us throughout the year for such activities as our Fall Harvest Roast Beef Dinner, the Great Live & Silent Auction for Catholic Education and Our Family Fun Night. "The Star is Shining"- see you soon!

Beginning in 2015, The Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo, N.Y., Inc. (“Foundation”) began soliciting donations to its “Upon this Rock” (“UTR”) capital and endowment campaign.  The UTR campaign raised funds for many purposes, including soliciting funds for making essential upgrades to classroom facilities and technology of Christ the King Seminary (“CKS”), expanding CKS’s role as a center of retreat and religious celebration, and establishing an endowment fund for CKS. Unfortunately, in early 2020, CKS’s Board of Trustees determined that CKS would close at the end of the 2020-2021 academic year. CKS’s closure will make it impossible for the Foundation to use the UTR funds raised for CKS for their original intended purposes.  However, under New York law, when the original purposes for which funds are donated become impossible to achieve, those purposes can be modified in a manner consistent with original intent by the New York State courts. For many years, CKS provided education and formation for ordained and lay ecclesial ministers in the Diocese of Buffalo and beyond. Accordingly, the Foundation has asked the New York State Supreme Court for the County of Erie to approve a modification of the purposes of UTR funds raised for CKS so that those funds can be used to support the education and formation for ordained and lay ecclesial ministry in the Diocese of Buffalo, as determined in the discretion of the Foundation’s Board.


If you have donated to UTR and would like to be heard regarding this requested modification, you may send a letter to: The Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo, N.Y., Inc., attention Executive Director, 795 Main Street, Buffalo, N.Y. 14203 or an email to [email protected]. Copies of letters or email received by the Foundation will be provided to the Court.  You may also make a formal filing in the legal proceeding entitled Matter of the Modification of Endowment Funds of The Foundation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo N.Y., Inc., Erie County Index No. 814747/2020. In order for your submission to be available for the Court’s consideration, please be sure to send any letter or email, or make any filing, no later than Friday, April 9, 2021.
