St. Anthony (Dubuque, Iowa)

Title

St. Anthony (Dubuque, Iowa)

Description

"Saint Anthony’s was a school for several years before it was a parish. As a parish it was dedicated first to Saint Malachi, then to Saint Aiden in 1880. Later to Saint Ambrose and still later to Saint Anthony. The parish had its beginning when Bishop John Hennessy directed Father Thomas O’Reilly, rector of the Cathedral, to build a school at the present corner of St. Ambrose and Seminary Streets in 1866. It was the policy of the new bishop to have a school in every parish, and he intended establishing a parish for the people of the hill district of Dubuque. The school was staffed by lay teachers until the coming of the Presentation Sisters in 1876, when the men of the area built a convent for them and became the pioneers of the new parish."

- Rev. Msgr. Edgar Kurt, Parish Profile #52, The Witness, December 1, 1987.
