1975: the beginning
In March 1975, if you were looking for a Catholic presence on the Eastside, the best you could do was a sign in a field on Brushy Creek Road. As a result of leadership from St. Mary’s Catholic Church and a growing Catholic presence in the Greer-Taylors area, 14 acres had been purchased to build a new Church. The fledgling community was meeting at Lee Road Methodist Church in their Gym for Mass and the 1st Pastor, Fr. Tom Bonifante, was beginning to investigate Church plans.
