As each Mass Mob Day arrives, we are filled with nervous excitement. Why? We never know how many people are going to show up. When Buffalo Mass Mob started in 2013, our hope was to draw 50 to 100 people. What happened over the last year is something that leaves us humbled. That something is you Buffalo. And you did it again on Sunday at Assumption Church. One thousand people filled the pews. It prompted this comment from church pastor Rev. Richard Jedrzejewski, “This is what the church looked like every Sunday 50 years ago.”
The Mass and the church were electric yesterday. The Assumption parish community were great hosts.
The way Buffalo Mass Mob has evolved in drawing people from all over the city and Western New York has also created a wonderful sense of community and a new appreciation for Buffalo’s incredible churches. This is at the core of why we started Mass mobbing.
It is hard to measure the impact of what we are doing. But the boost Assumption church received yesterday in tangible and intangible ways was wonderful.
We will be announcing the location of Buffalo Mass Mob VII soon…stay tuned.
Here is a video from Buffalo Mass Mob VI. We will be posting pictures pictures during the week.
