The Diocese of Western New York
St. Paul’s, Williamsville, NY is known as “the Church the children built”. The church started as an ecumenical Sunday School after World War II. The congregation grew from the Sunday School and became an Episcopal Church in the late 1940’s. The church building was dedicated in September 1949. Today St. Paul’s is known for children, community involvement, food and fun. Every Sunday we collect and bless food for the Food Pantry at Trinity Church in Lancaster.
We have a relationship with Harris Hill Elementary across the street - parishioners tutor children at the school. We have a relationship with School 6 in Buffalo. We collect school supplies in the fall and give each child a book at Christmas. We are partners with Hearts and Hands, which assists elderly people to stay in their homes, and the Family Justice Center, which assists those dealing with domestic violence. Visit the website >
