I remember that church well... I went to St Agness from the time Visitation closed till I graduated in '76... Beautiful church. I will never forget returning for Christmas in 1980 and going to Midnight Mass... They played "Drummer Boy" with the little drummer starting in the choir loft and you could hear him all the way down the stairs and then down the main isle to the manger.... Best Midnight Mass I ever attended.
I made my Penance and Holy Communion at this church in the 1980s. When we came to visit for my grandmother's 100th birthday I was deeply disappointed they turned it into a Buddhist church. I also went to the school for religion classes. I miss this church dearly.
I am so sad to see this church close. My dad and siblings attended school and church here in the 20 & 30's. Most of them continued to attend mass there and sent their children to school there. It was the center of the neighborhood! Even though my Dad was not a member of the church when he passed, they gladly allowed him to have his mass of christian burial here in the church his family grew up in! He came home...
My son, Robert White went here. He has since passed away.
Oh, this picture makes me want to cry, knowing now that the beloved Church of my youth is now a buddist temple! Beautiful shot. I wish I had one from before they painted over all the stars that were on the ceiling. BTW, in my nostalgia for St. Agnes, and before I found your lovely picture, I started a Facebook group asking people to post their photos/memories of the closed and/or merged Roman Catholic Churches of the Diocese of Buffalo. I'm not allowed to post a link here, but the groups name is: Closed/Merged Roman Catholic Churches of the Diocese of Buffalo, New York
This is was a church were my italian family went and most of them got married at. Now it is a buddhist temple
I'm with you on this. I can't believe they closed OUR church and school. This is a sad situation.
Say hi to Mike and the rest of the family for Betty and I - Frank Keitz
Sadly the church is now closed, a victim of the "Journey in Faith and Grace". The church, along with a school and rectory will now sit vacant. Let's hope it doesn't go the way of Transfiguration. Truly a sad sign of the times.
I got married here in 1992. What a beautiful church.
Hey, Whats up? Where are all of the comments from St. Agnes folks. Me and six of my brothers and sisters went to eight grades at St. Agnes in the 50's and 60's and my father and his brothers and sisters went there in the 20' and 30's. I live out of town now, but always attend mass there when we visit my Mom. We will truly miss our church.
