St. Patrick parish was established on March 17, 1848, in the home of parishioner Morgan Waters. On that day, Bishop Amadeus Rappe said Mass, heard confessions, and baptized new members. The Diocese of Cleveland had just been established on April 23, 1847. This information is from the history booklet that was put together for the 150th anniversary of the parish. This section will be a gateway to historical information as it becomes available.
