Holy Thursday - The Tradition of the Seven Churches

Enjoy this video created by Chris Byrd from Broadway Fillmore Alive as he visits the seven churches on Buffalo's East Side community on Holy Thursday, a tradition originating in the seven major churches of Rome.  The Seven Churches are located in Buffalo's historic Polish community, and St. Luke's Mission of Mercy is included in this wonderful pilgrimage.

  1. What a wonderful and peaceful video. Thanx for posting it. It brought back memories of childhood when we too visited 7 churches on Holy Thursday. Sadly the tradition has stopped here in the UK.

    God bless you and your family.

    Have a wonderful Easter.

    Some churches in the Philippines stay open until dawn; others close at midnight.

    Happy Easter, David!
