Summary: In this presentation we will be taking a deep dive into the Polish-American congregations of Buffalo. From the grand Roman Catholic parishes of St. Stanislaus and St. Casimir, to the historic Holy Mother of the Rosary Cathedral, a number of the Queen City’s churches will be explored in depth. Beyond the city’s most well-known churches, short-lived houses of worship such as the Polish Independent Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help on Miller, and the Polish People’s Presbyterian Church on Genesee, will also be featured.
