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,

Very nice Cathedral with Dynamic acoustics. It is well worth the visit just to enjoy the calm and the beauty.

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.

This is a lovely church with delightful boy's and men choirs. We were there on Advent II 2015. The sermon, which was given by a deacon, could have been given 50 years ago. (And, with all that's going on in the world, that's not a compliment. It was just Bible study--no attempt was made to relate it to modern life.)... More

A beautiful building but a religious museum on Sunday with antiquated liturgy and poorly done music. As a church it is dead and I get the impression they like it that way.

When you visit City Hall and the Guaranty Building, drop into St. Paul's across the street from the Guaranty. A beautiful old cathedral. If I'm ever in Buffalo on a weekend, I'd love to catch a concert there the way some other reviewers have done.

If you can catch a concert here, it is well worth the effort. This is a beautiful church in the center of downtown Buffalo-right near Cathedral Park. It is GLORIOUS! Parking may be an issue.

Lovely, inspiring cathedral. Happened to visit on Fridays at noon when they have concerts. Just a magical place.

This place is a hidden treasure! My husband and I were visiting friends for the weekend and were looking for an Episcopal church on Sunday morning. We had no idea that Buffalo had an Episcopal Cathedral, or that the worship would be so uplifting and inspirational. We attended the 10:00AM Eucharist, along with about 250 other folk. The choirs were... More
