The event series that is helping to put Buffalo’s historic churches back in the public spotlight, is planning to host its next Mass Mob at Corpus Christi Church. Corpus Christi is one of the most recognizable churches in all of Buffalo, and one of the most celebrated, considering its cultural ties and its overall ornate grandeur. In recent years, the church has undergone significant renovations, in order to save the building, which is closely tied in with the surrounding neighborhood.
Instead of closing in 2003, which would have spelled disaster for Corpus Christi, the church has been lifted up by the community, so that it may shine for many years to come. But that doesn’t mean that the church can rest on its laurels… no! Continued efforts must be made to secure a safe and prosperous future for this church.
On coming to Corpus Christi Church, Buffalo Mass Mob organizer Greg Witul says “Corpus Christi is a true artistic masterpiece, from the architecture to the stained glass and murals. But unlike a work in a museum, this piece of art was meant to experienced with celebration and music, friends and family. Hopefully with Mass Mob XII we can fill Corpus Christi again and enjoy it as it was originally intended.”
*Corpus Christi Church | Sunday, August 23, 2015 | Buffalo Mass Mob XII begins at 11:00am.
There will be church tours before Mass starting at 10:00am. Corpus Christi Church will also be celebrating the Feast of Our Lady of Częstochowa featuring music by Canada’s Ludowa Nuta Polish folk group. Afterward, there will be a refreshments, food and raffles tickes for the upcoming Dożynki Polish Harvest Festival for sale inside the church’s social and athletic club.
