St. Joseph's is a real gem tucked away just east of the heart of the city. Consecrated in 1863, it is a true masterpiece with a spectacular interior including a massive organ. The building is usually open making a visit easy.

A funeral was in process so we could only peek in from the foyer. Gorgeous stained glass windows and soaring ceilings. The plagues outside address the WWII people who served.

A holy and beautiful place of worship. We went to several Masses there while I stayed in Buffalo. The local parishioners were generous and kind. The pastor and priests were inspirational and St. Joseph's seems to be one of the best things about Buffalo.

Well worth the time. History and relics in the vestibule were interesting and architecture is outstanding. Parking on the street.
