In 1927 the Church was established as a parish and Rev. Peter F. Martin was appointed pastor of the parish. Soon the little chapel became too small for the congregation and the present Church was built in 1929. There are parishioners today who remember helping to turn the first sod and work began on the building. The Church was blessed and the first Mass was celebrated on December 8th 1929.
