This parish in the Diocese of Belleville was founded in 1925 and continues today (2021). Bishop Henry Althoff purchased Priester’s Park in 1919 and enabled the Oblate Fathers to establish a mission house and college for young men under Father John Schulte, OMI. In 1960 the Oblates relinquished their pastoral responsibilities and Msgr. Leonard A Bauer became the diocesan pastor. The School Sisters of Notre Dame were the first teachers in the parish school. A new church was built in 1965.

About these records, this database, caveats, citations, further research

About these records, this database, caveats

  • The Society and the compiler recommend researchers verify information provided on the SCCGS website with the original record extracted from images are online at FamilySearch. Also, verify the actual place buried with the cemetery sexton’s book, an obituary, funeral card, death certificate, or probate record. Courthouse, IRAD, and library addresses.
  • Researchers are urged to correlate information here with that found in other records before forming conclusions about a person, family, or relationship. Further research (scroll down).
  • Baptismal registers begin after the cut-off guidelines of the Society and of FamilySearch. There were no marriage register images to abstract.
  • If the burial register image is unsatisfactory (much ink bled through), request help from the Archives of the Diocese of Belleville at (618) 722-5057.
  • Square brackets [  ] indicate wording added by the compiler to clarify an entry.
  • Terminology reflects the time period and Roman Catholic Canon Law, both have changed over time.
  • Cramped handwriting, faint images, possible transcription errors, and names spelled phonetically or with diacritical marks will undoubtedly affect this compilation. Search tips may help locate an ancestor’s name if misspelled.
  • Given names abbreviated in the church book are spelled out when the English equivalent is certain (Elizabeth for Eliz., Louis for Ludovicus). When no apparent equivalent was known or ambiguous, the Latin name or initials were transcribed.
