Both Saint John Kanty and Saint Stan’s churches opened the month of May with traditional May Crowning of Mary on Sunday, 05/01. It’s great to share some multimedia of these timeless traditions from the neighborhood’s churches. These type of traditions are ties to the Polish immigrants who called the East Buffalo their home for generations. The connection between the past and present inside these historic churches is incredible. Saint Stan’s and Saint John Kanty are living history pulling the 1800s and 2000s together.
Saint John Kanty shared a parishioner’s video of the crowning.
Saint Stan’s posted a couple photos of their church’s Mary statue. (Click on images for full view on Facebook.)
