Precious Blood Mission Center at Thompson

In 1845, the Precious Blood Order started a mission center at Thompson (now Marywood). From this center, parishes in the following counties were served: Seneca, Huron, Crawford, Sandusky, Richland, Erie, Lorain, Stark, Medina, and Portage. Sisters, Brothers and Priests who served from the center are buried in the St. Gasper parish cemetery at Marywood.

Interesting that they would continue to use German as late as 1950.
