Most Blessed Sacrament, Toledo

Above is a photo of the interior of Most Blessed Sacrament in Toledo, when it was built in 1954.  It looks a bit stark in black and white, but does not appear so in person.  Parish website is HERE.

Pioneer Priests from Ireland

The Irish American Archives Society in Cleveland has produced an online publication, "Pioneer Irish Priests of the Early Cleveland Catholic Diocese."  As the territory of the Diocese of Toledo was once part of the Cleveland Diocese, many of these priests served in parishes in Northwest Ohio. Also included are several immigrant priests from other nations.  You can view the publication HERE.  (If you view it through a browser, some of the content does not show up properly.  If you download the PDF, it should be OK.)
