This was a wonderful place to sit and reflect on life away from the rush. It is very beautiful and peaceful. I am glad I had a chance to sit and worship quietly.

If you like Cathedrals... like architecture... appreciate beauty and craftsmanship... then don't miss visiting St. Joseph's. (You wouldn't go to Manhattan without visiting St. Patrick's, would you; the same applies to Buffalo's St. Joseph's.)

It is a very pretty church, with great architecture. It reminds me of churches in Europe. Very nice, serene place.

I'm a Catholic, and this is a sanctuary as far as I'm concerned. I did not chance upon a mass, but the architecture was great and a must-see. Actual visit - AUgust 2015
