Bishop Richard J. Malone visited Immaculate Conception School
in East Aurora on Oct. 2, 2012. He concelebrated Mass with Father Robert Wardenski, pastor of the parish. Parents and parishioners joined with faculty, staff, and students for the Mass, which marked the Feast of the Guardian Angels.
Telling the congregation that everyone has a guardian angel, Bishop Malone remarked, “It’s a great gift God has given us.” He also reminded the congregation that everyone can play the role of a guardian angel by helping and caring for others.
After Mass, Bishop Malone joined the community of Immaculate Conception School in the school’s new Science Lab. Karen Adamski, principal, welcomed the bishop to the new space, noting, “Every child in every grade comes to this lab to learn about science.”
Bishop Malone termed the lab “a place of learning, discovery, and wonder.” As he blessed the room, he said, “May our students always be grateful to God for the gifts He gives us and use them with respect.”
After blessing the Science Lab, students, benefactors, and everyone who works in the lab, Bishop Malone spoke with students from each grade about the projects they’re working on in science. Adamski said, “This was a wonderful opportunity for our students and faculty to meet our bishop, but also to show him how much emphasis we put on science learning and creating future scientists.”
