BUFFALO, NY - The Diocese of Buffalo has launched a new capital campaign to raise $100 million over the next five years.

That money will go towards a new initiative called "Upon This Rock," which aims to reshape and strengthen the funding of important programs in the church. That includes improvements to area parishes and ministries, and investments in education.

Bishop Richard Malone was quick to point out that this campaign is separate from the Catholic Charities appeal, as 2 On Your Side Photojournalist Dooley O’Rourke learned at a press conference on Thursday.
