Each time we put together a Mass Mob, there are a number of uncertainties. The biggest one is how many people will show up. We do a lot to get the word out through social media and traditional media. Until the day of the Mass Mob happens, we are always nervous. But what happens time and time again is that Buffalo comes through and helps pack a church like we did yesterday at St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church in East Buffalo. Without people, Mass Mob would not be a success. Thank you.
Mass Mob would not be a success either without the extraordinary response we receive from host churches. St. Nicholas Church, led by Pastor Reverend Marijan Procyk, rolled out the welcome mat for Mass Mob XXV yesterday with open arms. Between Reverend Procyk’s message of unity from the pulpit to the wonderful way the parishioners embraced guests to the church to the nice reception featuring Ukrainian food after the Divine Liturgy, our twenty-fifth Mass Mob was a memorable experience for all who attended. Thank you.
Everything about yesterday is why we do Buffalo Mass Mob…to give a local church some exposure while bringing people together to celebrate and experience a sacred site they would have otherwise never been to.
A little side note. St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic hosts a weekly ‘Friday Kitchen’ fundraiser for the parish. It features wonderful ethnic food. If you are looking for something different to do for lunch on a Friday, definitely check it out. You can find out more about it by clicking here—>

From Arthur, Chris, Danielle and Greg, THANK YOU! Buffalo Mass Mob XXIII is in the books, and it was a great experience for all who came.

Mass Mob continues to be a great celebration of the region’s incredible sacred sites. St

From Danielle, Chris, Arthur and Greg (organizers of #Buffalo Mass Mob), thank you for making Buffalo Mass Mob XVIII at Buffalo’s First Presbyterian Church a success.
Thank you to First Presbyterian Pastor Elena Delgado for a wonderful sermon and for going out of her way to make all, regardless of religious background, feel welcome inside of the church. Thank you to church’s Business Manager Christina Banas for helping us behind the scenes organize Mass Mob XVIII. It went off without a hitch! And thank you to the First Presbyterian Church community who welcome everyone through the doors on Sunday with open arms.
Thank you to everyone who brought donations for First Presbyterian’s food pantry!
Two videos from Mass Mob XVIII:
The music was truly exceptional and added a lot to Mass Mob XVII.
We will have more photos up by the end of the week!
One last thank you again to YOU! We couldn’t do this without the support of the people who come each time Mass Mob is held. It means a lot our organizers and the churches we visit.
Thank you Al Jazeera for the wonderful piece on Buffalo Mass Mob, telling our story, and some great video of Buffalo’s churches.
