Webster Co. Catholics Mark Anniversary of First Parish

The John Haire Store, located at what is today the corner of First Avenue South and Sixth Street in Fort Dodge, housed early services of Corpus Christi church— the first Catholic parish to be established in the Diocese of Sioux City.

Now 150 years after the founding of Corpus Christi, area Catholics are celebrating a century and a half through ceremonies honoring church members past at seven cemeteries throughout Webster County. Ft. Dodge Messenger
