This parish is the oldest in the City of Buffalo. This building is the third church on the site, and it dates from 1889. It is one of the largest church buildings in Buffalo.
Major renovations were done in 2003, including repainting of the interior. It is simply beautiful, and despite its' size, is warm and inviting. It is the closest Buffalo has to an European cathedral, what with it's numerous historical plaques commemorating the service of previous priest's.
A final note, this is the most accessible church in Buffalo, there is always parking on Main St., and parking in the church lot off Franklin. The church is seemingly always open, in fact, I have never found it locked. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The church office is located on Edward, in the first building immediately behind the church.
