Question: What was the first Church south of the city of Buffalo?<quoted text>
I'm familiar with South Buffalo and the old Regions that the Diocese had set up prior to the vicariate structure. The parishes in the Ward weren't among the Region 8 - South Buffalo parishes. Daybreak Productions did a video on "The Seven Churches of South Buffalo." Those included were St. Teresa's, then Holy Family, St. John's, St. Agatha's, St. Martin's, St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Ambrose. The Daybreak video said that St. Teresa's was the Mother Church of South Buffalo. If St. Teresa's is considered the Mother Church then the parishes in the Ward can't be included since they are older. I must agree that I too never would consider the First Ward as part of traditional South Buffalo.
Question: When did the phrase Region 8 start being used?
Question: Which Daybreak do you refer to?(The original or the profaned?)
Question: Who ever said Theresa's was the "Mother Church?
Question: What Irish bishop pissed off the Germans by moving the Church?
I enjoy discussions and do not mind being challenged but please know what you are talking about. You date yourself by acting like St. John's was ancient. I went to HS with people from there.
