In 1833, three families from Bavaria (Germany) arrived
at the docks in Cleveland and traveled west
into the woods past the Rocky River.
Arriving in what would become Avon, Lorain County,
they built log cabins, farmed the land, and raised livestock.
The first Mass in Lorain County was held in the cabin of the
John Schwartz family on March 21st, 1841.
By that time more families were arriving from
Bavaria, Prussia, Alsace and Lorraine.
Our first church was built on Jaycox Road in 1844
with a cemetery and a school house.
In 1900 land was purchased from the estate of abolitionist
and Congressman Dr. Morton S. Townsend
at our church`s present site.
The church was completed in 1902 and was constructed
of sandstone from quarries in Amherst and Dover (Westlake).
In 1924 a tornado damaged the church, rectory and school.
A white hall was built so the parish could celebrate Mass
until repairs to the church were completed. It has recently given
way to the expansion of our school and gym.
We`re proud to continue the "pioneering" tradition of building
and making new parishioners welcome in this unfolding story of faith,
celebrated and shared, preserved and handed on
to new generations since 1833.
