St. Mary (Corwith, Iowa)

Title

St. Mary (Corwith, Iowa)

Description

"On January 15, 1902, the Diocese of Sioux City was formed from the western half of the Archdiocese of Dubuque, following county lines. The Catholic church in Corwith found itself less than a mile east of the diocesan line. In both directions, Catholics of one diocese belong to a parish in the other. The next month Father William J. Baxter directed the building of the present Saint Mary Church in Corwith in 1913. Father Joseph P. Quirin also served a long pastorate, from 1918 to 1942. The annual catechetical summer schools began in 1926."
