 Bishop Edward Kmiec established St. Casimir’s Oratory in March of 2011, highlighting its resilient stewardship, the reverence of its people, and the unique Byzantine-style church (Buffalo Historic Landmark 1977). The parish itself was founded in 1890. Our former pastor, Rev. Anthony Majewski’s vision, “to raise the spirits of believers to spiritual greatness” was realized by artisans Chester Oakley and Joseph Fronczak in the church, an architectural masterpiece. It was dedicated on May 5, 1929 and paid for during economically strenuous times.

St Casimir’s Oratory is a Polish American Historic Landmark alive in Christian Worship and Polish Tradition. It is an all generational worship place, praying and working for the good of others.
