From Holy Rosary Church to Edwin V. O'Hara

Description

Letter from the priests of the Holy Rosary Church to Edwin V. O'Hara, Bishop of Kansas City. The priests express concern that affixing boundary lines to Kansas City parishes would be a detriment to the future of the Holy Rosary Church in Columbus Park. They explain that many Italian families living outside of the neighborhood far prefer Holy Rosary as this parish provides spiritual welfare for those most comfortable speaking Italian. The priests also express concern that the younger generation of Italian-Americans will move and attend a different church if the living conditions in Columbus Park do not improve.
