One Night and Seven Churches: Holy Thursday 2014


For the eighth year in a row on Holy Thursday (April 17), Broadway Fillmore Alive has put together a self-guided tour of seven historic churches in the First Ward, The Valley and the Broadway-Fillmore area partaking in the traditional visitation of the Blessed Sacrament in seven churches on this holy night.

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

The visitation period generally begins after Holy Thursday Mass around 8:30 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 700.

The churches in Buffalo’s historic immigrant neighborhoods 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.

Thousands of people descend on East Buffalo’s Historic Polonia to visit seven churches on Holy Thursday.

  1. Wonder if you could look into providing a shuttle bus for those who do not drive and/or own cars? This would also be a greener option than having hundreds of cars crawling around the Olde Neighborhood vying for parking spots.
