The stained glass windows on the inside really are among the prettiest of all the stained glass windows I have seen in real life and on google images. Homeless jesus really is a thought provoking statue and the plaque honoring all the men from Buffalo and the parish who served in WW1 is really special to see if you are... More

Great old church, rebuilt after a devastating fire, but even reading that history is fascinating. Don't need to spend a lot of time, but a take a look inside and be impressed.

We didn't go inside the church but the edifice was imposing and very impressive. It covers a large space in downtown Buffalo near Ellicott Square.

This Church has a unique shape and gothic characteristics. Inside is as beautiful as the outside is interesting. A Sunday mass is held inside the church & 8:00am and outside the church at 10:00am in the summer.

The building is impressive as are several older building neighboring it. It was built at a time when churches and the city of Buffalo had wealthy patrons. There are few structures as impressive is the Cathedral for sheer beauty of craftsmanship. It wears its age well as do all the great cathedrals.

This very English gothic space with its wonderful Tiffany stained glass windows is both a National Historic Site and a stunning item in Buffalo' rich architectural heritage. The height and light of the interior is a sharp contrast to the heavy stone stairs and entrance,

I attended early morning Mass. here. And the Dean was extremely welcoming as well as with the other cathedral staff. Felt right at home and will definitely attend service here again the next time I am in Buffalo. The building itself is amazing. Is a fan of cathedral architecture, this was a treat for you to view. The cathedral is... More

Amazing. Singers well done, and some of them look so young, almost as if they're about 10-18. Amazed by what this choir can do, especially with the men.
