City of Erie -
St Paul's Roman Catholic Church
Contributed by Rick Landers
The information below has been extracted from the Souvenir Dedication Program, March 17, 1935, for Saint Paul's Roman Catholic Church. The church, located in the City of Erie on Walnut Street between 16th and 17th, had its beginning in May 1891. Ground was broken for a new House of Worship on August 19, 1928, but the economic recession at the end of the 1920s resulted in a partially completed building. With renewed funding efforts about 1933, the building was completed. Images of the pages in the dedication program have been scanned and provided by Rick Landers. Various individuals have assisted in transcribing the documents for presentation here. This particular page has been transcribed by Rachel Ristau.
A society of recent origin dedicated to a religious-social program, in short, to carry out the Holy Father’s mandate of “Catholic Action”. Societies such as this one constitute the essential motives of the cooperation of the laity in the work of Bishop and Pastor. They are always the mainsprings of any large united effort, lending an intelligent and moral assistance to practical leadership. The Tuesday Club has been largely responsible for the opening of the new church. Its many contributions at a critical time in the history of the parish cannot easily be forgotten. The club was founded in May, 1934.
