St. Mary's Catholic Church, Akron, Ohio

St. Mary’s Catholic Church

Although the current church building opened in 1916, the history of St. Mary’s parish goes back much further.  In 1887, Bishop Richard Gilmour commissioned Rev. Dr. Thomas F. Mahar, pastor of St. Vincent Church, the oldest Catholic church in Akron, to establish a mission in South Akron. That mission became St. Mary Parish in 1896.
