One Night and Seven Churches
Thursday 24th Mar, 2016
A self-guided tour of seven historic churches in the Broadway-Fillmore/Polonia and Kaisertown areas, partaking in the traditional visitation of the Blessed Sacrament in seven churches on this holy night. Churches this year include: Saint Stanislaus, Corpus Christi, Saint Adalbert Basilica, Saint Luke’s Mission of Mercy, Saint John Kanty, Saint Casimir, and Saint Bernards.
The visitation period generally begins after Holy Thursday Mass around 8:30 pm and most of the churches remain open to 11:00 pm.
The churches in Buffalo’s historic immigrant neighborhoods are awe inspiring and are deeply rooted in tradition. This is a way to experience their religious, artistic and cultural beauty while spending some time in prayer and reflection during this most sacred time of year on the Roman Catholic calendar.
This is the tenth year in a row that Broadway Fillmore Alive has put together a tour on Holy Thursday. In the first year, there were about 50 requests for tour information. The number of requests over the last few years has risen to more than 2,000.More Information Find Prepaid Parking
