Buffalo Mass Mob XXIV will be at Sts. Peter & Paul Orthodox Church in Lovejoy

***Please check out our fundraiser for the church by clicking here—>


The Buffalo Mass Mob will be heading to the city’s Lovejoy neighborhood for the second time when Mass Mob XXIV takes place on Sunday, October 15, 2017, at Sts. Peter & Paul Orthodox Church. We will be mobbing the church’s 10:00am Divine Liturgy service.

Sts. Peter and Paul Orthodox Church was established in 1894. It is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Here is some history of the church and parish community from the Buffalo as an Architectural Museum website.

25.625.6#2

The church is tucked away at 45 Ideal Street in the Lovejoy neighborhood. Like other older worship communities in Buffalo, the church has seen a decline over the years. The church is also in the midst if trying to raise money to fix the church’s dome. Mass Mob friend and local preservationist, Chrissy Lincoln, brought the church and dome to our attention. We decided it would be a good place to bring the Buffalo Mass Mob and help raise awareness about the church.

It’s a beautiful church, PLEASE JOIN US ON October 15th!

Mass Mob XVII will be at St. Margaret’s Church on August 7th

1-P1050456-poster-small

Buffalo Mass Mob is excited to announce that Mass Mob XVII will be held on Sunday, August 7th, 2016 at St. Margaret Church’s 9:30am Mass. St. Margaret’s is located at 1395 Hertel Ave in the heart of North Buffalo.

Please share with your family and friends, and save the date for Buffalo Mass Mob XVII.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here’s the history of St. Margaret Church from the parish’s website:

In the fall of 1916, Most ReverendDennis Dougherty, fifth Bishop of Buffalo purchaced nine acres of land in the north section of the City for a parish to meet the needs of the people in an area that showed promis of rapid grouth. The tract was bounded by Hertel, Saranac, Linden, and North Park. The purchase price was $ 45,000 covered by a bank motgage.

On December 6th, 1916, Reverend Thomas J. Timmons was appointed first pastor and founder of the new parish, Bishop Dougherty wanted in this area. The name chosen was suggested by Father Timmons. He recalled a wish expressed by the late Bishop Colton to name the next parish after his beloved sister Mrs. Margaret Bingham, deceased and St. Margaret of Scotland. Bishop Daugherty was pleased and graciusly gratified Bishop Colton’s desires.

The area that was picked was found to be a swamp on Fr. Timmons first visit to the site. The streets marking the boundries were nothing more then mud lanes having no sidewalks, water mains or sewerage. In his anxiety to have the modern equipment of every kind installed in the area, Father Timmons assumed the burden of the debt.

On Sunday, December 10, the announcement was made in the Cathedrail that Father Timmons was appointed to the new parish and on the following Thursday, December 14th, 1916 those few in the vacinity saw wagons loaded with lumber drive up to the vacant site and unload. At noon of that day a force of carpenters, under the direction of Charles Fimiani began contruction of the first little church erected in exactly fifty hours on the Southwest corner of Hertel and North Park Avenue.

As happens in Buffalo almost every year a blizzard hit on the monring of December 15th, the workers tried and tried but at Father Timmons request work was halted at noon on Saturday, December 16. Mr. Fimiani and Mrs. Adolpgh Yung, Father Timmons first convert who brought steaming pots of coffee gave arguements but the work was stopped. The storm raged on until Wednesday, December 20. Then they returned under adverse conditions. The men shoveled and swept away the accumulated piles of snow and began the construction of the church. On December 23 about 10:30 PM the work was finished.

We will see you in August!
