For the fifth 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, April 21, 2011.

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 rose to over 500 in 2010.

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 the year on the Roman Catholic calendar.

  1. I’ve used your map and guide for the last few years. It is great to visit these beautiful churches.

  2. Attended first time in 2010 with my sister…….this is breathtaking & inspirational. Children & families welcome. Your children have never seen anything like this before & will never forget it. Chaperones, parishioners & tour guides present at each site. Plenty of free parking in church lots. Extremely safe environment. Don’t miss it !! Find the time…make sacrifice. It’s Easter time: need I say more !!

  3. I attended for the first time this year. Thank you so much for opening your doors so we could see these beautiful works of art. Each church was beautiful in its own unique way. I got to see all seven and loved every minute! Thank you again. Hope to do it again next year.
