A Church in a Changing Village
A priest and his parishioners greet a patriotic parade in the 1920s. The church was originally built in 1900 for a Baptist congregation and its rededication in 1914 as St. Stanislaus Kostka reflected changes in the village brought by new emigration from Eastern Europe. Farther up the block is the former St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, built in 1887 and now a private house. Inset: A 1942 photograph shows St. Stanislaus' before it was redesigned.
Un sacerdote y sus feligreses dan la bienvenida a un desfile patriota en 1920. Originalmente construida en 1900 para una congregación bautista, la reconsagración en 1914 como la Iglesia de San Estanislao Kostka refleja los cambios traídos por la nueva emigración de Europa Oriental. Un poco más arriva en la cuadra, actualmente una residencia privada, está la antigua Iglesia Luterana de San Mateo, construida en 1887. Recuado: Una fotografía de 1942 muestra la Iglesia de San Estanislao antes de ser reconsagrada como tal.
