St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church (Columbus Grove, Ohio) - MS 922 mf
The records of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, 1912 - 2001, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio 43403, in November 2001, with the cooperation of Reverend Bernard A. Kokocinski of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church.
The collection consists of baptisms*, first communions, confirmations, Book of the Elect, marriages* and deaths. Due to inconsistencies in pagination and transcription of data, researchers are encouraged to refer to all volumes within each series. (See order of microfilming for a detailed list of these records.)
This register and this collection was prepared by Jennifer Golis in December 2001.
*There is a seventy (70) year access restriction on baptism and marriage records. No restrictions apply to the remainder of this collection.
In 1887, St. Anthony of Padua began as a Station of St. Rose Catholic Church in Lima. In 1909, the parish petitioned the diocese to establish a permanent parish in Columbus Grove. The petition was finally acted upon in 1911.
In 1912, the parish received their first resident pastor, Father John Theis. In 1913, the parish built a combination church, school and convent. In 1938, the church began building a new church. They began with a church in the basement. The rest of the church was not completed until 1953.
