Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Moved by Grace

January 22nd, 2010, Promulgated by Choir

The beautiful St. Gerard’s Church in Buffalo will be dismantled and moved down south to Norcross, Georgia. Courtesy of the New Liturgical Movement website, I found this website about the move.

Let’s pray that as our churches closes in the DoR, that a Catholic Church needing a new church will factor beauty into their decision and not just utility. That is what the current pastor in Georgia wanted “something beautiful.” St. Gerard is a miniature replica of the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls in Rome. St. Gerard’s is built in the Renaissance Revivial style of the Roman basilica

And, if you like church architecture, here is a link to other churches (Catholic and non-Catholic) in Buffalo.

At its height, the city of Buffalo was about 80% Catholic and Rochester was a little less than half of that. We do have some gems in Rochester but, seriously folks, if you want to see some magnificent churches, go to Buffalo.
