One Night and Seven Churches Holy Thursday, 04/05/2012

For the sixth year in a row on Holy Thursday, Broadway Fillmore Alive has put together a self-guided tour of seven historic churches in the Broadway-Fillmore area partaking in the traditional visitation of the Blessed Sacrament on this holy night. Holy Thursday is on April 05, 2012.

Churches on this year’s tour include: Corpus Christi, Saint Ann, Saint Stanislaus, Saint Luke’s Mission of Mercy, Saint Adalbert Basilica, Saint John Kanty and Saint Clare.

The visitation period generally begins after 7:00 pm and the churches remain open till around 11:00 pm.

In our first year, we had about 50 requests for the tour info. The number of requests over the last few years has risen to over 500.

The churches in Buffalo’s historic Polonia 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 in this most sacred time of year on the Roman Catholic calendar. It also provides an opportunity for people who want to explore all these architectural gems on one night.
