Explore Buffalo®, is a non-profit organization providing opportunities to discover Buffalo’s great architecture, including Blessed Trinity. Visit https://explorebuffalo.org to reserve your place for our unique All-Hallows Eve/All Saints Day tour on Sunday, October 30 at 12:30 p.m. Think skulls, devils, monsters and graveyards are just symbols we associate with Halloween? You’ll find them all in the medieval iconography displayed on the church facade. Inside, marvel at a saintly procession in the church’s great dome mural as docents highlight the spectacular interior details of the church and its extensive display of Christian symbolism. Visitors will be treated to All-Hallows’ Eve selections on the church’s 1927 Tellers-Kent pipe organ.
Completed in 1928 at a cost of over a half million dollars, the church is considered one of the purest examples of 12th Century Lombard-Romanesque architecture in the United States. The exceptional level of artisanship involved in its creation marks Blessed Trinity as a work of art that can never be replicated.
The church is located at 317 Leroy Avenue in Buffalo. It is wheelchair accessible with plenty of off-street parking.

Neighborhood Night Out
Saturday, August 13, 2022
Saturday’s “Meet Your Neighbor” night out was a great success. Neighbors came and stayed to enjoy food and drink, face painting, church tours, lawn games and the live reggae sounds of Strictly Riddim. Members of our docent team enjoyed answering questions and sharing knowledge about our Landmark church with approximately 35 visitors, a number of whom admitted they had lived in the neighborhood for years but had never been in the church. Many thanks to the discipleship committee for planning and hosting this event.

Parishioners found plenty of reason to celebrate on Sunday, July 10, 2022, beginning with Father Gebhard’s 35th Anniversary of ordination. Following his Anniversary Mass, they had an opportunity to personally thank him for his dedication to the priesthood and contributions to our parish at a reception in St. Charles Hall.
