Fall Sports Highlights

We would like to sincerely thank our coaches and the parents of our athletes for their dedication and commitment to our Fall Knights Athletics program! Without you, our teams would not exist!

  • Congratulations to our Flag Football team for taking home the league Championship on October 23rd!  This was our Team’s 6th Championship out of 7 years! Our MVP for the season was Will Harmon, who led our offense as quaterback.  He was a duel threat as a passer and runner.  His leadership was invaluable this season.  The Knights’ determination, commitment to regular practices and execution of their offensive and defensive strategies were key to their success.  Great job boys!
  •  Our Girls Volleyball Team fought with great heart and perseverance against Christian Central Academy in their Quarter-Final Playoff game, but ultimately fell to their opponent.  Congratulations to our seniors, Anna Reese, Clare Grande and Mary Udike.  We are looking forward to seeing our 2022 lady Knights in action next Fall. Great season Knights!  
  • Congratulations on our Soccer team’s  2-0 victory on Saturday, November 6th, and finishing the season undefeated, and winning the NFCAA championship!  “This has been the most enthusiastic and cohesive group I’ve coached so far. Thanks to everyone (players and families) for being a part of the team this season; I hope you all had a great time.”  Coach Uhrich

Thank You for Attending the Walk by Faith…High School Eucharistic Youth Conference

Renew  716 Ministries, together with the Fransiscan Sisters of Mary, Our Lady of Victory Charities and SENT Ministries presented the “Walk by Faith, Not by Sight” Eucharistic High School Youth Conference on April 17th.  

The conference was a tremendous success and the Holy Spirit was alive and leading youth from all over Western New York toward Christ.  We are grateful to our generous sponsors and to the countless priests who concelebrated Holy Mass, Adoration and heard Confessions. We are especially grateful for the The SENT (Student Evangelization Networking Teams) missionaries from Franciscan University of Steubenville,  who led the retreat with great enthusiasm and love for our Lord.  We are hosting the first Walk By Faith Middle School Experience and Eucharistic Conference on July 12th – July 15th.  Please see the Flyer or click HERE for more information on how you can register your middle school student, youth group or homeschoolers.

Mass of the Holy Spirit

Chesterton Academy of Buffalo staff, students and families were invited to attend our annual Mass of the Holy Spirit on September 7th. We kicked off the school  year in prayer together and most importantly, in thanksgiving and worship of Our Living God!  Seniors were presented their senior blazers and the entire congregation prayed for them and a fruitful year!  Finally, as is tradition, all faculty and staff prayed an Oath to the Magesterium.

St. Luke’s Service Day!

Chesterton Academy of Buffalo collected toothbrushes and other personal care items, assembled and organized 500 gift bags to be delivered to St. Luke’s neediest community members for Christmas on December 18th.  The service day was a huge success and students helped bring a little joy and warmth to our friends at St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy!

On October 20th, students and faculty enthroned the Sacred Heart of
Jesus as King of our school.  The enthronement ceremony was led by our
Headmaster, Mr. Jim Simon and the Pastor at Sacred Heart of Jesus
Shrine, Fr. Lukasz Kopala.  The students took part in the reading of the
12 Promises of the Sacred Heart and a presentation of roses in honor of
the new image placed in our school lobby.  Teachers and students then
hung images of the Sacred Heart in each classroom, proclaiming, “Jesus,
we enthrone You in our classroom. May Your love fill the room and our
hearts.”  May Jesus, King of our School, bring us countless blessings
and take charge of our studies, projects, meetings, extra-curricular
activities, and all of our affairs, big and small!
