Want to help Saint Ann’s? Do this now!


On Tuesday, September 24 at 2pm, the issue of making Saint Ann’s Church and Shrine (http://saintannbuffalo.org/) a local landmark comes before the Buffalo Common Council in the council’s chambers.  If the council approves the landmark status for the church, it will go a long way in helping ensure Saint Ann’s will not be demolished by the Buffalo Diocese.

What can you do?  If you can’t make this meeting tomorrow at city hall, contact the following council members and urge them to approve landmark status.  It is really as easy as that.  People often think they don’t have a voice, but you do…use it.  Saint Ann’s deserves no less.  The East Side and the Broadway corridor has lost a lot of buildings over the last two decades.  Let’s not let this glorious church disappear.
