185th Anniversary Mass in Akron

The first record of a Catholic priest visiting Akron was in 1833 when this area was still a part of the Diocese of Cincinnati.  The Rev. John Martin Henni, who would later become the Archbishop of Milwaukee, came to say Mass in the log cabin of James McAllister, a local contractor. To help celebrate: Akron area parishes are invited to a special Mass of Thanksgiving on Thursday, the 27th of September at 7PM, the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul, at St. Vincent de Paul Parish, the mother parish of Akron.  Bishop Bohdan J. Danylo and Bishop Martin Amos will be here to help celebrate.
