BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Hundreds of people filled St. Thomas Aquinas Church in South Buffalo Sunday morning.

A Mass Mob took place at the historic Irish parish, spiking the attendance from 60 people to around 600.

People came from as far away as Michigan and Mississippi for the mass. The church had a special musical arrangement during mass. After the service there was a self-guided tour of the church and a picnic.

Father James Judge opened his homily with the line, “It looks like 1957 out there, there’s not a seat in the house.”

He concluded the mass, by thanking the Mass Mob organizers, saying they must “have halos around their heads.”

The next Mass Mob will be at Assumption Church in Black Rock, on October 5 at 11 a.m. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
