Saint Adalbert Basilica featured in Buffalo News today

I always get excited when the Buffalo News features one of the neighborhood’s treasures. And that is exactly what Saint Adalbert Basilica is, a treasure. Derek Gee, photographer from the Buffalo News, captures the basilica in spectacular detail.

From the News:

Established by Polish immigrants in 1886, St. Adalbert Basilica has long been an iconic structure in what, for generations, was known as Polonia on Buffalo’s East Side. The church’s intricate stained-glass windows were imported from Germany and its magnificent altar has carved marble railings, sculpted angels above it and a detailed sculpture of the Last Supper adorned with gold mosaic tile along the base of the altar. The parish was designated a basilica in 1907 – the first in the United States to receive the designation. Today, Mass is celebrated in the basilica four times a year. The next Mass will be held at 3 p.m. on April 8- another Mass is set for 5:30 p.m. April 28 to celebrate the Feast of St. Adalbert.
