The Rochester school administration was helpful in renting to St. Mary's Reuther Middle School cafeteria for the three weekend Masses. One day when Fr. Strain was trying to figure out where parishioners could meet for Mass on weekdays and evening meetings, he was called to Christian Memorial Cemetery for a committal service. In the middle of the prayer it struck him that the chapel where he was standing could be the place. He called his friend Bernard LePage, the owner, and arranged for lunch. Mr. LePage was generous in opening up the chapel any time it was needed (as long as it did not interfere with funerals). A search committee found office space at 703 Barclay Circle.
