Celebrate 70 Fun Fact: Church Ground Breaking

Posted on August 8, 2023 by Published by

When temporary church space in OLW School was converted to seven additional classrooms needed for rapidly growing enrollment, Father O’Hara and his loyal parishioners realized that construction of a permanent church was a necessity. There was no alternative. Money was needed to build the additional school classrooms, so Father decided to build the Church exterior completely and but forego finishing the interior until a more advantageous time.
