Heavenly Visions of Chocolate?

On a recent trip to Niagara Falls on the United States side, I came across this church:


Chocolate Church, Niagara Falls, NY

In case it wasn’t evident from the first photograph. Here is another one that shows the board outside the church more clearly:


There was no other signage of any kind, so I have absolutely no idea what sort of church this is, or how chocolate is involved in their worship. If anyone knows anything about this, do let me know in the comments!

A quick google search produced nothing illuminating. I found it so fascinating, I had to stop and take a photograph!

I saw it too yesterday, posted it on FB that it might be a church I fit in at! Must be a sweet fellowship! I read the article above before landing on this page.

I had spoken to I believe the owner of the building . He is Chinese and was very nice. From what he had told me, he was going to turn Our Lady of Lebanon Church into a chocolate museum, (also sell chocolate and I believe was going to show how it was made.) This was about 4 or 5 year ago when I was talking to him. Since then I have not seen him anymore. My thoughts are that he invested the money into this building for that reason but due to the disintegration of the area decided it wasn’t going to be good venture. I see the lighted sign every time I drive by there and also wonder what’s going on.
