Order A Candle for the Mass of Remembrance at St. Adalbert Basilica Mass Mob

1-DSCN3811

The Mass of Remembrance is an opportunity to remember those who have passed on. You can participate by ordering a candle from the church. You can include a name of a departed loved one on the candle when ordering. The candles will be available at the church prior to Mass for pickup.

During the service, each name that has been submitted to the church will be read aloud. At that time, people who ordered a candle will be asked to bring their candle(s) up to the altar. The candles will be placed around the altars of the church. It is a beautiful ceremony.

Buy a Mass Mob Shirt, Help the Response to Love Center

Part of what Buffalo Mass Mob does is help raise money for missions or charities connected to the churches we come to. We’ve selected the Response to Love Center (RTLC). We selected the RTLC because it located on the campus of the church in the church’s former school. The RTLC has served Buffalo’s East Side since 1985 with a variety of programs. 100% of proceeds goes to the RTLC. What we are doing is selling a t-shirt with our Buffalo Mass Mob logo on the front and a listing of all of our Mass Mobs on the back. To find out more about the organization, click here.

People have been asking us to sell our t-shirts again. This is a great way to commemorate our five year anniversary and 30th Mass Mob, get an awesome shirt and help a wonderful organization. If you don’t want to buy a shirt, you can simply donate.

To order or donate, click here. The sale is for two weeks only.

Please share! Thank you.

Buffalo Mass Mob turns 30 as it heads to St. Adalbert Basilica

When Buffalo Mass Mob started five years ago, our expectations were to get fifty to a hundred people to show up to our Mass Mobs. Our first at St. Adalbert Basilica did substantially better that. Our second at Our Lady of Perpetual Help packed the church full. Our third at St. John Kanty did the same. That’s when we knew that we were truly onto something that was bigger than we expected. From there, our group has been packing the pews in and around Buffalo since then. You can find a list of all of our Mass Mobs by clicking here.

To celebrate our thirtieth Mass Mob and five year anniversary, we are going back to St. Adalbert Basilica on Saturday, Novemeber 3rd, 2018 for the church’s annual Mass of Remembrance at 5:30pm. It is almost exactly five years to the day when we held our first there.

The Mass of Remembrance is an opportunity to remember those who have passed on. You can participate by ordering a candle from the church. You can include a name of a departed loved one on the candle when ordering. The candles will be available at the church prior to Mass for pickup.

The candles will be placed around the altars of the church. It is a beautiful ceremony. You can download a candle form by clicking here. The Mass will also feature the wonderful voice of soprano vocalist Brittany Mruczek, accompanied by Steve Kroczynski on guitar.

There will be a reception after Mass in the back of the church. It will be a great chance to walk around the church and mingle with people from St. Adalbert’s.

Saint Adalbert Basilica

St. Adalbert Basilica is only open to the public a handful of times a year. Mass Mob XXX will be a great opportunity to experience this truly special place. It is located at 212 Stanislaus Street in East Buffalo.

Buffalo Mass Mob XXIX Will Take Place at Saint Rose of Lima R.C. Church on September 23rd

The Buffalo Mass Mob will be heading to Saint Rose of Lima Church in the city’s Starin Central neighborhood on Sunday, September 23, 2018 for 10:30am Mass. This will be our twenty-ninth Mass Mob and our fifth this year. The church is located at 500 Parker Avenue, Buffalo, New York, 14216.

The Saint Rose of Lima Church complex was list on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017 because of its significance “for the highly intact examples of Collegiate Gothic and Neo-Formalist style buildings that give it a unique feel from similar parish campuses around the city.”

Saint Rose of Lima is linked with Parkside’s Saint Mark Church. Rev. Joseph S. Rogliano, is the pastor of both St. Mark and St. Rose of Lima.

Here is brief history of Saint Rose of Lima church:

“On November 23, 1925, a declaration was signed by Bishop William Turner establishing St. Rose of Lima Church, and Fr. George Crimmen was appointed its first Pastor. Following the declaration, construction of the rectory and the combination building of church, school and auditorium commenced. St. Rose of Lima School opened on September 13, 1926 with 161 students in grades 1-seven. Three Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart and one lay teacher comprised the staff. The Grey Nuns, who arrived in the United States in 1921, had a presence at St. Rose from 1928-1998. In 1928 the first class graduated with 15 boys and 17 girls receiving diplomas.

Following the opening of the school, construction of the rectory was completed on November 3, 1926. The second floor of the combination building was dedicated as the church on November 21, 1926. The parish and surrounding neighborhood expanded rapidly during the subsequent years, and summer picnics, night football games, annual outdoor masses, lawn fetes, block club parties and dinners were popular parish events.” The current church building was built in 1965.

There will be light refreshments in the church vestibule after Mass.
