The first in a pair of stories on St. Matthew's Roman Catholic Church in Buffalo. Congregants laid St. Matthew's' cornerstone in October 1911. The church had many good years, but the last mass took place in 1993 as Buffalo's population plummeted. Now, as the church turns 100, it's literally falling to pieces. Rain blows in through broken windows. Paint flakes from the walls.
Fellows in KDMC training programs go on to produce media- and technology-rich stories at their home publications.
