Parish History


Emigrant predominantly came to Silver Lake from Southern and Eastern Bohemia and Western Moravia, along with neighboring Poles, French and Germans.  St. Adalbert's Parish in Silver Lake (1877 – 1896) was replaced by St. Joseph's in 1896 and was his mission. In 1993 St. Joseph's united with St. Adalbert’s to form a new Holy Family Parish. Both church buildings remained open. Five years later the arrangement proved to be too much. The parish couldn’t financially support two buildings, so it decided to close the St. Adalbert church building. The last Mass was celebrated there on Jan. 4, 1998.
