Wonderful organ

The Architecture is fascinating. The pipe organ even better.

A real landmark
May 2019
This is a jewel sitting in an area full of them--including Sullivan's Warranty Building and works by E.B.
Green. But even without their company, it's well worth exploring. If you can get there while the excellent boys' choir is performing, all the better.

Tiffany window
Dec 2018 • Couples
I am a follower of Tiffany windows for many years. To find one in downtown Buffalo during a tour was a surprise. The window is in perfect condition and in a beautifully restored church. The church was lovely inside and the staff was welcoming.

Reaching to the homeless
Jun 2018 • Couples
The first view of this church, I saw brown bricks. This Cathedral was solid!

When I came closer, I saw a statue on a wooden bench. It was a statue of a homeless and behind him there was a plaque: "Homeless Jesus". There was another plaque. 130 men and 7 women served in World War 1.

The entrance door was very pretty! The stained-glass windows are nice as well. This is worthwhile to see!

Nice church
Jul 2018 • Couples
This church was being cleaned on the outside when we visited. The inside was nice but dark. It was not a really impressive church but the stain glass was nice.

An excellent restoration
Sep 2017 • Family
St. Paul's was built in 1973 but it was an explosion in 1888 that almost demolished the church. It was beautifully restored with the highlights being the organ and the painted ceiling. It's definitely worth a peek inside and look for the photos of the nearly ruined church from the 1888 explosion.

A Most Lovely Cathedral
Jun 2017 • Solo
While wandering around “downtown Buffalo,” I kept being drawn to the steeple of St Paul’s. I was not sure exactly what I was seeing, but finally worked my way to the building, and was impressed with it, from all angles.

It is a most lovely Episcopal Cathedral, and though the grounds are minimal, there is also a children’s play area, that was very nice.

The exterior has some beautiful plantings, and the architecture is lovely – again, from all angles.

When I visited, there was a service inside, so I only got a bit of the benefit of the interior beauty. Still, what I could see, from my vantage point, was exquisite, and breathtaking.

I would recommend visiting, when there are no services, so that one can take it all in, and not intrude on those worshiping inside. If we had only had more time, I would have been back.
