 Introduction

The records of Resurrection Catholic Church, 1969 - 2001, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio 43403, in June 2001, with the cooperation of Reverend Stanley S. Szybka of Resurrection Catholic Church, Lexington, Ohio.

The collection consists of baptisms*, first communions, confirmations, Book of the Elect, marriages* 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.)

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

*There is a seventy (70) year access restriction on baptism and marriage records. No restrictions apply to the remainder of this collection.

 Agency History

In 1971, the parish received their first resident pastor , Reverend Robert J. Weithman. In this same year the parish built their first church. Since 1969 the church has been growing steadily.
