A holy and beautiful place of worship. We went to several Masses there while I stayed in Buffalo. The local parishioners were generous and kind. The pastor and priests were inspirational and St. Joseph's seems to be one of the best things about Buffalo.

This is a BEAUTIFUL cathedral and last night was the annual Chrism mass, the blessing of the holy oils for the coming year. The choir, the procession and the organ with trumpets make this a very moving experience.

This was a wonderful place to sit and reflect on life away from the rush. It is very beautiful and peaceful. I am glad I had a chance to sit and worship quietly.

If you like Cathedrals... like architecture... appreciate beauty and craftsmanship... then don't miss visiting St. Joseph's. (You wouldn't go to Manhattan without visiting St. Patrick's, would you; the same applies to Buffalo's St. Joseph's.)

It is a very pretty church, with great architecture. It reminds me of churches in Europe. Very nice, serene place.
