was a real community focus for polish and non polish. Many grads went on to be good Western NY citizens with strong moral ideals. Discipline, duty, religiosity and foundational educational instruction. Highly motivated priests and nuns sacrificed to make a better world.

This parish merged with St. Stephen, Sts. Rita and Patrick, Holy Apostles Sts. Peter and Paul, and Precious Blood parishes in 2007.

St. Valentine's is located in the Old First Ward Neighborhood, and served the neighborhood's Polish community, whereas two other Old First Ward churches.. Our Lady of Perpetual Help RC Church (on O'Connell Ave.) and St. Brigid's RC Church (on Louisianna St.) served the largely Irish community in the neighborhood.

Mass at St. Val's was said in Polish and the school students were taught Polish by the Felician nuns. The 2nd floor of the building was the school, while the 1st floor was the actual church, and the basement held a social hall...

St. Val's now has a Spanish Mass, as the surrounding neighborhood has aged and changed in the past 25 years.
