Blessed Sacrament Church, Buffalo, has enjoyed a very long and distinguished history closely linked to several of the bishops of the Diocese of Buffalo. Founded in 1887 as the chapel for the second Bishop of Buffalo, Bishop Stephen Vincent Ryan, the chapel was soon expanded to meet the needs of a growing congregation and named Blessed Sacrament Church. A growing city and a growing Catholic population called for even more expansion and plans were put in place to build a new cathedral adjacent to the church that would hold 1,500 people. In 1915, St. Joseph’s New Cathedral was dedicated. However, after sixty short years, the Cathedral was demolished due to severely deteriorating materials that could not withstand the Buffalo winters. At this point, in 1976, the parish was recommissioned, once again, as Blessed Sacrament Church.

“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”
1 Peter 4:10
We know from scripture that everything we have is a gift from God. We are the stewards of His many gifts to us. Please consider to what extent you could participate in the life of Blessed Sacrament Parish: in our worship together, in our service to our parishioners and those in the wider community, and through your financial support. We would not be able to all that we do, or do what needs to be done without your gifts of time, talent, and treasure.
