Saint Teresa’s Fenceraiser Fundraiser

The Buffalo Mass Mob is heading to South Buffalo. Our thirty-second Mass Mob will be held on Sunday, March 24th, 2019 at St. Teresa’s R.C. Church located at 1974 Seneca Street for 11:00am Mass.

Saint Teresa’s Church is in need of new fencing and gates for their Mineral Springs parking lot. The cost estimate is $12,OOO. The Mass Mob goal is to raise $1,000 to help them with this hefty undertaking.

A new fence and gate is imperative for many reasons but the main reason is for safety.

Recently Saint Teresa’s had to install a new boiler in the church which cost about $25,000 and this past fall had a new sewer and water line installed at a cost of $18,000. The parish is 120 years old and the old buildings and infrastructure are constantly needing updates.

St Teresa’s is probably one of the most unique parishes in the Diocese of Buffalo.  One reason is because the Medina Sandstone Gothic style beauty has been placed on the New York Sate Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places, both in 2016.  Additionally, St. Teresa is home to a restored Heritage pipe organ.

Nine parishes have become part of St Teresa’s over the past 10 years. St John the Evangelist was the first parish merger.  The came St Clare’s three years ago. Approximately 10 years before, the following parishes we’re merged to make St Clare’s: St Stephen, St Valentine, Sts Peter and Paul, St Patrick, St Rita, St Monica and Precious Blood.

We thank you in advance for your consideration of helping St Teresa’s reach their goal of installing a new fence and gate to help keep parishioners and the community safe!  We hope that you help us #ProtectSacredSites and #PackThePews at #Buffalo #MassMob XXXII.
