History and Priests
Founded in 1913, this parish was originally within the boundaries of the Cathedral parish, St. Peter (Belleville). Congregants were predominately miners ministered by priests from area parishes. Today (2022) the parish is in partnership with St. Joseph parish (Lebanon, Illinois). Overseeing the parish were the Reverends John Grootens (1913-1914 from Cathedral), J. Reinhardt (1914-1915 from Lebanon), Cyril Haffner (1915-1922), Emil Chuse (1922-1924), Anthony Kiefer (1924), John Wiemar (1924-1925), Louis Tuger (1925-1931), Albert Zuroweste (1931-1935), Francis Beykirch (1935-1943), Robert Hutsch (1943-1946), James McCormick (1946-1956), and more.
