Introduction

The records of Our Lady Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral, 1915 - 2001, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio 43403, in May 2001, with the cooperation of Reverend Ronald R. Warnimont of Our Lady Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral, Toledo, Ohio.

The collection consists of baptisms * , first communions, confirmations, marriages * , interments and deaths. Due to inconsistencies in pagination and transcription of data, researchers are encouraged to refer to all volumes within each series. (See order of microfilming for a detailed list of these records.) Some records are in Latin and Spanish.

This register and this collection was prepared by Jennifer Golis in May 2001.

Agency History

On March 7, 1915, Our Lady Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral Parish formed from portions of St. Francis de Sales Cathedral, St. Ann and St. Patrick parishes. The Holy Rosary Cathedral is located on Collingwood Avenue in Toledo, Ohio and was built in 1914. It was originally built for the parish of St. Francis de Sales Cathedral. On August 16, 1920, a flood destroyed the Cathedral. Work began on the new Cathedral in 1925 and it was completed in 1931.

In 1940, Our Lady Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral was dedicated and became the Cathedral of the Diocese. Previously St. Francis de Sales was the Cathedral of the Diocese.

The membership of Cathedral Parish grew steadily from 1941 through 1962. After 1966 membership declined due to families moving to new parts of the city and neighborhoods changing.
