The next Buffalo Mass Mob will take place on Sunday, June 25, 2017 for St. Anthony of Padua R.C. Church’s 9:00am Latin Tridentine Mass.
St. Anthony of Padua R.C. Church was founded in 1891 by Father Antonio Gibelli of the Missionary Fathers of St. Charles Borromeo to provide for the religious well being of the large number of Italians immigrants settling in Buffalo, NY during the 19th century.
The parish quickly became the social center the of the city’s 20,000 plus Italian population. Within a year, Gibelli had established the first Italian language school in the United States. | Source: Camerata di Sant’ Antonio (June 2011) |
This is the first time the Buffalo Mass Mob will be attending a traditional Latin Tridentine Mass. The Latin Mass was the norm in the Catholic Church before 1964. Now, there are a number churches around the country (including a handful in Buffalo) which have regular Latin services. In the coming weeks, we will provide a primer on the Latin Mass. We are excited to be bringing the Buffalo Mass Mob to Saint Anthony’s. Going to their Latin Mass will be a wonderful experience for all attending. This also marks the first time Buffalo Mass Mob heads downtown for Mass.
Saint Anthony’s is located at 160 Court Street behind Buffalo’s city hall.
