Seven Churches in Polonia on Holy Thursday via Bike? Say hello to the Holy Roll!
Some of the regular participants in the hugely successful Slow Roll Buffalo have gotten together and organized a ‘Holy Roll’ for the traditional seven churches Holy Thursday visitation on April 13th, 2017. The group will visit churches in East Buffalo’s Historic Polonia and Kaisertown neighborhoods.
From the group’s Facebook event page:
Hello my fellow cyclists!
Let me start of by saying this ride/event is not meant to push religion on others. It is a ride that is meant to enlighten people on faith.
During the Lenten season Catholics celebrate the life, death and sacrifice Jesus made for humanity. One of the celebrations is an event called Seven Churches.
We will be riding to seven churches-this will give riders a chance to visit some churches in the area.
Fr. Jud has consulted with Chris Byrd (who founded the Mass Mob) who coordinates the Polonia 7 Churches. This will be our route: 8:30 p.m. meet at St. Bernard’s. Then St. John Kanty, St. Luke’s, St. Adalbert’s, Corpus Christi, St. Stan’s, St. Casimir’s and either leave from there if you wish or return to St. Bernard’s if you parked there. We would have a system so that people would be outside watching the bikes while the others went inside.
The group will visit the same churches Broadway Fillmore Alive does in its ‘One Night and Seven Churches’ pilgrimage on Holy Thursday. You can read more about that by clicking here—> http://broadwayfillmorealive.org/2.0/2017/03/one-night-and-seven-churches-holy-thursday-2017/
It looks like the ‘Holy Roll’ is going to a cool event and great way to experience the beautiful churches in Broadway-Fillmore and Kaisertown.
