LED BY FAITH…
The traditions and Faith of their ancestors remained at the core of the family.

BRICK BY BRICK…
Faith of our Fathers
On the corner of Date & Columbia… the tiny house would grow to become the religious center of Little Italy.
A community founded in faith… Over successive generations, our priests have encouraged and led the parish to honor their traditions
A pilgrim church founded by immigrants to bring the Faith of their fathers to a new land continues to minister to the faith community, celebrating the Blessed Sacraments for new generations.
