In communities of the West and East Sides of Buffalo, many nonprofits are doing good work inside neglected buildings, whose slow decay creates crisis that drain valuable resources away from the central work of the organization. This is where 716 Ministries steps in and takes over building maintenance and projects for these nonprofits and churches.  They are then able to perform their respective missions more sustainably. We currently serve various organizations and churches, of all shapes and sizes, throughout the city of Buffalo. We are blessed to be able to serve those who serve in our great city

Loretto Ministry Center

The Loretto Ministry Center (LMC) is the former Our Lady of Loretto, built in 1954 by the Catholic Diocese. Our Lady of Loretto closed to the community in late 2009.  716 Ministries purchased the property March 2010 and opened LMC as a community center to our neighbors. 

The building consists of three parts:

-The school, which includes a gymnasium and kitchen.

-The church, which seats over 400.

-The rectory, which can house up to 20 people.

Currently, the following groups meet and operate on a regular basis at LMC:

- 716 Ministries

- Peace of the City Ministries

- Jericho Road Community Health Center: Parent Child Home Program

- Houghton College: Wesley ServiceCorps, Student Teachers

- Destiny International Church

If you know of any ministry partners who would like to rent space on the first floor of Loretto, please contact our office at info@716ministries.org.
