Dates of existence


In 1898 a Slavic priest was appointed to serve Prairie people who were natives of Poland, Czechoslovakia, the Ukraine, and Germany. In 1899 construction began on a church for them, and Holy Ghost was blessed in 1900. Holy Ghost received its first pastor in 1901 and a school was built in 1902. The parish was canonically erected in 1912. Although the Ukrainians and Germans soon separated from Holy Ghost, the church was enlarged in 1909. In 1917 the new Polish parish of St. John Cantius was created, dividing the Polish people. In 1958 a new school was built and a parish credit untion was established in 1961. The parish was served by Polish Oblates.
