Sacred Heart Catholic Church - Muenster, TX
I was doing my normal weekly digging around looking for new content for our facebook page when I came across this parish in Muenster, Texas. Its story intrigued me, and I believe it truly shows the faith and spirit of the Catholic immigrants to the United States.The community of Muenster, Texas celebrated it’s first mass for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on Dec. 8th, 1889 with twenty-five men, seven women, and six children attending.

St. John the Evangelist parish in Cambridge, MA began as a mission of St. Peter’s in 1890. In 1893, St. John’s became a separate parish with their first pastor Father John B. Halloran. Mass was celebrated in a small wooden chapel on Rindge Ave. In 1904 work began on the new church, built by Mr. Stephen Brennan. The first Mass was held on Easter Sunday 1905 and the church was dedicated the same year.
