The church itself is beautiful. Went to a wedding there. The ceremony wasn't crazy long like some churches which was awesome. I've been to some Catholic ceremonies that lasted close to 90 minutes. This was 45 mins, tops. I liked the homily. Overall a great wedding location. I imagine the Sunday services are just as nice.
St. Joseph is the Catholic cathedral on the south side of Downtown Buffalo. The cathedral doesn't have much activity outside of mass times as the diocese is actually across from St. Louis church on Main St. on the north side of Downtown Buffalo. There is a small chapel behind the alter and stain glass windows can be found throughout the cathedral. The cathedral is well maintained and there is a small parking lot that is shared with the Erie County Courts, so the best bet is to find street parking when visiting on a weekday.
