This is the only Polish Roman Catholic church – and one of Hamilton’s first ethnic churches. Although a functioning church from 1912 (basement only), the structure was not completed until 1927 due in part both to the First World War and the impact of an independent homeland on Polish immigration. Interior features include murals and a custom-built Casavant organ.
