does anyone know a good way to find old church/school records from here? My great grandfather Fred Allein went to school here. I know he was there in 1889. He was born in Buffalo in 1879

My Grandfather, Clarence Pempsell, used to ring the bells when he was a alter boy at the turn of the century. He was married to my Grandmother, Irene Bebber, in 1916. My Mother Gwendolyn and Father, Melvin used to take me there to Christmas Midnight Mass. What a wonderful church.

I think a Virginia Ball was in my first grade class. Do you remember the nun ringing the hand bell to start classes?

I spent most of my life until my late 20s in this parish. I sang in the choir, went to the school and married there. A beautiful place SMS. I remember the fire when services had to be held in the school's 3rd floor.
