St. Ann’s Church and Shrine on Broadway at Emslie had its last Mass on Sunday, April 29, 2012. The church has been sitting without any life for almost a decade. There have been various rumors over the years of new life for the church, but nothing has ever come to fruition. I still hope something can be done to ensure the future of these treasure, and to have it continue stand tall in East Buffalo.
About the video. I shot this at the St. Ann’s annual German Mass in 2009. The Mass was a way to pay tribute and celebrate the church’s German roots.
