Formed out of Saint Stanislaus. In 1889, Father Gnielinski found an empty two story building on 8th and Mound Streets, used formerly as a Protestant Church which he manged to buy for the sum of $5,000 and had Vicar-general Brady bless two days after the purchase. The building was renovated with the upper story serving as a Church and the lower being turned into a school that immediately acquired 60 pupils who were taught by a Richard Budo, the first teacher.

Parish moved to Saint Louis County.
