Inscription.  In 1870 Father Joseph Kraemer became pastor of a Catholic mission at Corunna that included all of Shiawassee County. In 1874 he assisted Antrim Township Irish Catholics in purchasing the Alling Schoolhouse, which he dedicated as a church. Father Kraemer traveled first from St. Johns and later from Owosso for mass. In 1892 a church was built in Morrice. When the mission became a parish in 1926, it also had many German and Czechoslovakian members. The church burned in 1953 and was razed in 1962. The present church was dedicated in 1955.
 
Erected 1992 by Bureau of History, Michigan Department of State. (Marker Number L1873.)
