About the Parish


Our History

In 1859, under the leadership of Bishop John Henry Luers and the dedication of 16 local families, the decision to build a church to serve rural Allen County was made.  Christian Miller, a founding parishioner, donated 3 acres and the Church was built one year later.

In 1876, in an effort to secure the teaching of Catholic doctrine to our young people in the faith, the focus shifted to the development of a parish school.  The school was built in 1882
