BE A HERO AND SAVE THE DAY
Now it’s time to shine a spotlight on our city’s equally impressive sacred sites.
While Americans flock to the great churches of Europe, there are equally
extraordinary houses of worship to be explored right here in our own
backyard. These landmarks need your help. Now, for the cost of a bus tour,
you can be a superhero.
The tour includes:
Blessed Trinity R. C. Church -the purest replication of Lombard Romanesque architecture in the United States, noted for its unique brickwork and extensive use of ceramics.
First Presbyterian Church – the oldest faith community in Buffalo, established in 1812, features Tiffany designed stained glass windows.
Corpus Christi R.C. Church – saved from closing in 2004, highlights include exquisite stained-glass windows and an iconic mural, considered to be one of the most significant examples of ecclesiastical artwork in the United States.
The Buffalo Religious Arts Center – established to collect and preserve art from houses of worship that have closed in Western New York. This collection of stained glass windows, statuary, and works of art provide a unique insight into Buffalo’s culture and history.
A portion of the tour proceeds goes directly to maintain these irreplaceable sites.
So grab a friend, play tourist for the day, and help save some of Buffalo’s heavenly landmarks.
