Hopefully, as you got about to formulating your Sunday schedule of events, you decided to include attending today’s Mass Mob being held at Holy Angels Church on Porter Avenue. The church is one of the more high profile buildings on Porter Avenue, and is an icon of the West Side of Buffalo. It is considered one of the oldest Catholic churches in the city, and was established in 1856.
If you are not familiar with Mass Mob, a concept that originated in Buffalo, then the idea is fairly simple to grasp. According to Buffalo Mass Mob co-founder, Christopher Byrd, “We want to showcase Buffalo’s historic churches, but we want the community to see them in their intended purpose. A lot of the city’s churches have fallen off people’s radar screens. This gives people who come to a mass mob an opportunity to share in the living and breathing history of a church and an understanding of how important they are to the cultural and historic fabric of Buffalo.”
Buffalo Mass Mob VII will take place on Sunday, December 7, 2014 at Holy Angels Church’s 10:30 AM Mass. Holy Angels Church is located at 348 Porter Avenue
