This year’s East Side Dyngus Day festivities will be preceeded by an Easter Monday Mass at Corpus Christi Church. Fr. Mateusz Wydmanski, pastor of Corpus Christi Church, welcomes all visitors to the Historic Polonia District to “start the day right” by thanking the Lord in the beautiful landmark church located at 199 Clark St. during an 11:30 a.m. Mass.
Across the world, Easter Monday marks the second day of Easter Week and is a work-free holiday. With the increasing popularity of Dyngus Day in Buffalo, the local populace may be “voting with their feet” and enjoying the day. For the past few years, Corpus Christi has been part of this movement, seeing an increase in attendance at its mid-day Easter Monday Mass.
Immediately following the Mass, a Dyngus Day Luncheon will be held in the Parish Athletic Center on Sears St. Ample parking will be available in the Church parking lot between Clark and Sears Sts. The Church is located at 199 Clark St., one block east of the Broadway Market.
At 5:30 p.m. Corpus Christ Parish will host a Dyngus Day Party in the Athletic Center where live music will be provided by Al Kania’s Polka Smile, Eastern Style. Polish beer and Polish pizza will be available, as well as a large theme basket auction.
For reservations for the Luncheon and information about the Party, please call Aniela Baj at 479-2342. For all Parish related questions, including Holy Week Mass schedules, please call the rectory at 896-1050.
