Corpus Christi Catholic Church, at 199 Clark St., was built from 1907-1909 and is the seventh Polish parish established in Buffalo. Founded by the Rev. Hyacinth Fudzinski, a Franciscan friar from Czarnków, Poland, the church was built to serve the spiritual needs of the quickly growing Polish community living in the neighborhood on the East Side. The Franciscan Conventual Friars gave up the parish at the end of 2003. The church today is run by the Pauline Fathers, and still offers a Polish Mass at 11 a.m. Sundays. Father Michael Czyzewski is the pastor.
