Parish History


"The Parish was founded in 1907. Cardinal Gibbons appointed Rev. Charles Kotlarz to organize the parish, a distance from St. Athanasius Parish, in Curtis Bay. The Martin Wagner Company, offered a large tract of land a certain amount of money to commence the building of the church. The corner­stone for the church was blessed June 30, and in November, 1907, Cardinal Gibbons consecrated the new church.

In the years 1906, 1909 and 1910, several Church societies were organized. In February, 1912, the Society of St. Aloysius, was established it was the first Polish Roman Catholic Union group in Baltimore, Maryland. For a number of years Rev. C. Kotlarz conducted the Parish school. With the decline of the Parish it became necessary, to discontinue the school, as the Polish people were leaving the vicinity because of lack of work.

Today, the future of the parish has a gloomy aspect. Scarcely 65 families belong to the Parish. There is a mixture of languages and races - several Polish families, some Irish and Negro. The services are conducted in Polish and English. There is no school, no Societies and no organizations."
