LGBT flag was flying high here.

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.

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.
