Whether you are a visitor or new to our parish, interested in becoming Catholic, seeking to return to the practice of your faith, or an active member of our parish, we are pleased that you have come to our website and we will do all that we can to assist you.


About Us

From 1870 until the parish was founded in 1875, Mass was celebrated in the homes of the people. The present church was built in 1904. It was a mission of St. Mary's Church, Piqua, until 1905.



The Catechism of the Catholic Church describes sacraments as "efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is dispensed to us.
