By the late 19th Century, nearly 20,000 Polish immigrants inhabited Buffalo’s East side, also known as Polonia. As the growing number of families exceeded the capacity of the first Polish parish there, more churches were constructed. A second parish, St. Adalbert’s Basilica, opened in 1886. The third parish, St. John Kanty, followed soon after in 1893. Yet, Buffalo’s Polish population still continued to increase, and Corpus Christi Church opened in 1898. Visitors will tour inside all three of these historic churches of Polonia. Each have their own striking architectural features including ecclesiastical murals by Josef Mazur, Munich style stained glass windows and a life-sized carving of the Last Supper.
Note that proceeds from each Sacred Spaces tour are shared with the participating houses of worship to support maintenance of their historic buildings.
