It's not uncommon to have hundreds gather inside of a church on a Sunday morning. But Holy Angels Church on Buffalo's west side was more crowded than usual.

That's because of "Buffalo Mass Mob," a group that uses social media to draw crowds to Buffalo's historic churches.

"What we're trying to do with Buffalo Mass Mob is to get people to pay attention to see that we have these incredible churches, historic churches that are a part of the fabric of the city," said Christopher Byrd.

Byrd says Holy Angels is the seventh church to become a mob location.
