Sites now closed / History

St. Teresa's School educated generations of children in South Buffalo. The school building is now closed and is being renovated as an apartment complex.

St. John the Evangelist R. C. Church in Buffalo merged with St. Teresa's in 2009.

St. Clare R. C. Church in Buffalo merged with St. Teresa's in 2016.

Over the years, a number of other parishes in Buffalo came to merge with St. Teresa, including: St. Patrick, St. Rita, Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, Precious Blood, St. Stephen, and St. Valentine.

We are fortunate to have some lifelong parishioners, such as Kathleen 'Kathy' Frawley, who can speak about the history of the parish in a most familiar way.
