Criteria for naming of a Family of Parishes

  1. It embraces all parishes within the Family.
  2. It is something all parishes can relate to in some way.
  3. It can be a name that reflects historical significance, geographical features, or acronyms that represent the parishes. (example: Beloved Disciples of Christ the Lord… for the family of parishes that represent Bowmansville, Depew, Cheektowaga and Lancaster)  
  4. The only thing the name cannot be is a Saints name, so as not to confuse the Family name with the parish names.
