Parish History


The parish of Our Lady of Czestochowa Church was established in 1896 to serve Polish Catholics. In that same year, a frame church was built on 24th Street, near Fourth Avenue, but it was destroyed by fire in 1904. On July 17 of the same year, Bishop McDonnell laid the cornerstone for the present church that was erected on the same site at a cost of $80,000. Designed in the Gothic style and constructed of Belleville gray stone and brick, the façade features a central tower and steeple that rises 175 feet over the main entrance, flanked by shorter towers on each corner. In addition to the church, the complex includes a rectory and a parochial school, administered by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, that was built in 1911. The school has since closed.

In 1980, the parish of St. Casimir's, another Polish congregation, was merged into Our Lady of Czestochowa; the combined congregation was renamed Our Lady of Czestochowa–St. Casimir Church.
