Our Sites

Each church that has become part of Our Lady of the Lakes has its own unique history. For instance, St. Januarius’ was a parish by itself for most of existence. While on the other hand, St. Andrew’s was always a mission church of St. Michael’s, with priests from St. Michael’s offering the Sacrifice of the Mass there every weekend and providing for all the sacramental needs. St. Patrick’s shared a priest with St. Gabriel’s in Hammondsport before being united with St. Januarius’ in Naples. St. Mary’s and St. Theresa’s, formed independently, had worked together for many years.

Each with its own story, the six churches of St. Andrew’s, St. Januarius’, St. Mary’s, St. Michael’s, St. Patrick’s, and St. Theresa’s began to work together. With Changing demographics, declining attendance, and reduced number of clergy called for collaboration and sharing of resources, our diocese called for every parish in the diocese to undergo a planning process. First as individual parishes reviewing strengths and weaknesses, and then together as regions. Our diocese is made up of twelve regions. Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Community is one of these regions. Today we are still a still a faith community and parish covering all of Yates County and parts of Stuben and Ontario Counties.
