Introduction | Agency History | Order of Microfilming

 Introduction

The records of St. Patrick Catholic Church and St. Andrew Catholic Church, 1850 - 2001, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio 43403, in August 2001, with the cooperation of Reverend David R. Bruning of St. Patrick Catholic Church and St. Andrew Catholic Church.

The collection consists of baptisms*, first communions, confirmations, 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 August 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

The parish histories of St. Patrick Catholic Church and St. Andrew Catholic Church have been linked since 1863, when both parishes were Missions of the church in New Riegel.

St. Andrew, the older of the two parishes, began as a Mission of Peru in 1834. In 1845, the parish became a Mission of New Riegel. In 1863, the parish of St. Patrick was formed and became a Mission of New Riegel too. The church of St. Patrick was originally located in St. Patrick Settlement, but was relocated to Bascom in 1913, after a fire destroyed their church building.

Beginning in 1893, St. Patrick began being served by their own resident pastors. Starting in 1893, St. Andrew was cared for by the priests of St. Patrick. They have remained sister parishes through the present.
