Forced to leave Germany by the anti-Catholic legislation of Bismarck’s “Kulturkampf”, three Sisters of Notre Dame arrived in Cleveland in 1874 and established their first ministry in the United States at St. Peter Parish, a German parish formed in Cleveland’s “East End” in 1853. A Mass of Thanksgiving will be celebrated in Historic St. Peter Church, built in 1857 and now the oldest church building in regular in the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland.
