On January 10, St. André Bessette parish bid a fond farewell to Sr. Barbara Schiavoni after six years in Malone. The parish hosted a joint celebration for Sister Barbara and their organist, Sheila Maneely, who has retired.  Sister Barbara will be a member of the Sacred Heart Center being established in Buffalo.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFr. Joe Giroux stated, “now other folks will benefit from her gentle, kind, and prayerful spirit, which has been such a blessing in our parish and community. Please keep her in your prayers during this time of transition, since good-byes are always tough. We thank you, Sister! We love you!   We’ll miss you a whole lot! And as you make this winter move back to the land of lake effect snow, we send you with our warmest blessings!”
