Blessed Trinity’s Sacred Sites Open House

Sunday, May 19, 2024

12:00-3:00 p.m.

Blessed Trinity Church joins the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Fourteenth Annual Statewide Sacred Sites Weekend, welcoming you to an Open House on Sunday, May 19.

Join us as we celebrate both past—the second year of our construction centennial (1923-l928)— and present—our church as the setting of a pivotal scene in Cabrini, the 2024 biographical film released in March 2024, depicting the life of St. Frances Cabrini.

Docents will share their knowledge of this unique replication of twelfth century Lombard-Romanesque architecture with its handmade bricks, extensive use of terra cotta, fascinating medieval iconography and display of more than 2,000 Christian symbols—all “made in America” by local tradesmen and artisans. Experience our recent restoration effort as you enter via the reconstructed church stairs and front plaza.

And no introduction to Blessed Trinity would be complete without music. The church’s original 1927 Tellers-Kent pipe organ underwent major renovations in 2022, and the instrument will be featured in musical interludes during the Open House.

Visit us on Sunday, May 19, 2024, from 12-3 PM, and bring your questions about the architecture, art and history of Blessed Trinity Church, its faith community, and its place as an anchor in its East Buffalo neighborhood for more than 100 years. And don’t forget your camera for the Conservancy’s Sacred Sites Photo Contest.

Located at 317 Leroy Avenue, the church is wheelchair accessible with ample off-street parking.
