Register for Disciple Camp in May! Disciple Camp, (now for Gr. 5 -10) will be held at St. Greg’s from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm on June 27 through July 3, breaking for the weekend. Disciple Camp is a high impact faith formation summer camp that fulfills the instructional component of the Diocese of Buffalo curriculum. Lessons are enriched with music, prayer, speakers, outdoor activities, crafts, and more. Students will grow together as a peer community of faith and then continue service and faith experiences on their own throughout the year. This program is open only to active parishioners of our family of parishes, Shepherd & Saints Roman Catholic Family (#19: St. Gregory the Great, St. Pius X and Good Shepherd Parishes) with regular Mass attendance. 

2023 Disciple Camp Service & Ministry Record Cards handed out last summer are due April 30, to the FFF Office, which is open Monday - Thursdays, 9:00 am - to 2:00 pm. They are due prior to registration. The cards can also be turned in at the parish or school office or sent to us in the mail. The Service & Ministry component is essential to Disciple Camp as a faith formation program - one of the few summer faith formation programs like it offered in our area.

Online Registration is from May 1-30.  Click here to register.

Vacation Bible School  Recap 2023


Dear God, Give us the courage and strength today, to carry out your will.
May we keep an open heart and mind and listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit.
When life presents us with challenges that consume us,
let us know that you are always present with us.

May we feel the comfort of your unconditional love.
Keep us strong and confident in all that we say and do.  Amen.
