Saint Joseph (Dysart, Iowa)

Title

Saint Joseph (Dysart, Iowa)

Description

"Saint Joseph Parish, Dysart, probably began as a triple-town parish. In 1937 Father James F. Delay wrote in a parish history, on November 11, 1878, Father P. Kenny was appointed the first resident pastor of Vinton, Dysart and Traer.” At that time church had allowed a priest to be pastor of only one parish. The other churches in his charge were called missions. Vinton may have been the parish from the start, with Dysart and Traer as missions. Soon churches were built in each of these towns." 

- Rev. Edgar Kurt, Profile #193, The Witness, 30 September 1990.
