What is something people might not know about your parish?
Between October and April, on the first Sunday of the month, everyone is welcome to stay for “Finger Food Sunday” after the 8 a.m. Mass. Parishioners are invited to bring a dish to share, but it is not required. It is a great time of hospitality, fellowship and friendship — not to mention there is a great deal of delicious food for a fabulous breakfast.
In the Welcome to Our Parish feature, Jan. 12 issue of the Superior Catholic Herald, Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Crescent Lake, is listed as being established in 1957.
As parish member Kathy Okonek clarified: “Sacred Hearts Church began (in) 1905, with Mass being said in homes whenever a priest was in the area. The first church was built in 1909. The current church building was built in 1957. A large addition was built sometime during (the) 1970s.”
