Twentieth Century Club
Cocktails: 6:00 p.m.
Dinner: 7:00 p.m.
Please join us at Fall Fest on Friday, October 19, as parishioners and friends enjoy an elegant evening at Buffalo’s historic Twentieth Century Club, 595 Delaware Avenue. The event includes: a one-hour open bar, hors d’oeuvres, a three-course dinner and live music by the Neville Francis Band.
This $100 per person fundraiser benefits our Under This Roof Fund and will help fund the replacement of roof tiles and repairs to the front stairs and entrance plaza of our Landmark church. This work is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2019 as part of our New York State grant project.
The building which houses the Twentieth Century Club is another of Buffalo’s architectural treasure. You will be welcomed to a historic site which has, since 1894, played host to dignitaries including President and Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt and Mr. and Mrs. Booker T. Washington.
Reservations are now closed, but the reservation form may be used to make a donation to the church’s Under This Roof Fund.

On May 5 and 6, Blessed Trinity will participate in the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Eighth Annual Sacred Sites Open House Weekend with its theme of “Sacred Sounds and Settings.” Experience the splendid acoustic our house of worship provides, as well as its status as a repository of faith, art, and history.

On Saturday at 4pm, choral music accompanied on the church’s original 1927 Tellers-Kent organ will soar from the loft as it has for more than 80 years in a brief concert by the parish choir prior to 4:30pm Mass. On Sunday at 2pm, enjoy the building’s acoustical embrace in the a cappella choral offerings of the St. John Paul II Schola Cantorum, including seasonal selections and Gregorian chant.
