On Sunday, December 19, 2021 at 2pm, the St. John Paul II Schola Cantorum returns for an Advent Service of Lessons and Carols. Works by Byrd, Handl-Gallus, Hassler, Praetorius, Rheinberger, Victoria and others will be performed. Lessons and Carols is a service of scripture readings and sung responses that tell the story of salvation from Genesis to Revelation. It takes you on a journey through time that begins in the Garden of Eden with the fall of man, and leads up to the coming of a Savior. The journey does not end with the coming of Christmas, however. It is an ongoing journey that continues every day of our lives until Christ comes again in glory. Join us for this beautiful preparation to welcome Jesus into our hearts! The St. John Paul II Schola Cantorum is an “a cappella” choir dedicated to preserving, promoting and performing sacred choral works from the great treasury of music of the Catholic Church. Their repertoire ranges from Gregorian Chant to masterpieces of sacred polyphony from the Middle Ages to modern times. For more information, follow them on Facebook @JP2Schola.
We’ll be “decking the halls” – not to mention the nave, transept and Sanctuary on Monday evening, December 20, beginning at 6:30. Plan now to stop and lend a hand. It will make your Christmas experience at Blessed Trinity even more meaningful. Please enter by the ramp side door.
His Excellency Bishop Michael Fisher will celebrate the 10am Mass at Blessed Trinity on Sunday, December 19, 2021. The parish will host a reception in his honor immediately following the Mass.
We are happy to announce that Explore Buffalo will return for a holiday season tour on Wednesday, December 29, at 2pm. Invite your friends to experience our landmark with its Christmas décor.

In-person tours of our Landmark church will resume this Saturday, October 30, 2021 at 2pm. when Explore Buffalo visits Blessed Trinity. Members of our docent team will showcase the building’s Lombard-Romanesque design and share their knowledge of its unique handmade bricks set in a style dating back to the Middle Ages, the extensive use of terra cotta in its construction, and the fantastic array of Christian symbolism found in the interior artwork. To reserve a place for the tour, visit Explore Buffalo and go to October 30 on their calendar.
