Inscription.  Coming to Maryland in 1868, the first major influx of Poles settled at Fells Point where, at 223 S. Bond Street beginning in 1877, they conducted their religious services. Under Rev. Peter Koncz (1839-1886), they organized the Parish of St. Stanislaus Kostka in 1879 and dedicated this church on 26 June 1881. Since 1905, this parish has been under the care of the Franciscan Conventuals who continue to help Polish immigrants to adjust to American life.
