Former Queen of Peace church to become mosque, youth center

from The Buffalo News

A Muslim group has purchased the former Queen of Peace Catholic Church, rectory, convent and school on Genesee Street and plans to use the complex as a community center and mosque.

The church, by the architects who designed the landmark Buffalo City Hall, will be called Masjid Jami, which means a space to gather together, said Dr. Hatim Hamad, who is leading a group of Muslim parents backing the purchase.

The deal is further evidence of a growing Muslim presence throughout Western New York, which already has nine mosques and a 10th being built on Transit Road in Amherst."

The Gloriified Body of the Resurrection

As imagined by an art exhibition in the pro-Cathedral in Brussels. As CS Lewis once said, modern humanity is too easily satisfied. Clearly, they have a reduced expectation of the great glory that will be revealed.

The Many Sides of Father Theobald

Cartoons illustrating an invitation to a Mass celebrating forty years of priesthood in Austria.

Clearly a man from the Class of '68! Acting any human role that one could wish apart from the most important one, In Persona Christi.

Most undignified altar

Not as if they cannot see the grandeur of the original behind. Church of the Recollects, Estinnes, Belgium.

Close up

Choir stalls supporting the statues for the Procession of St Ursmer on the morrow

Real alter used as flower table- particularly egregious example.

Liturgical excellence in the Phillippines
