Holy Angels Catholic Church is the mother church of Sandusky.
Reverend Joseph P. Machebeuf, a French Missionary, began ministering
to Catholics in the Sandusky area in late 1839.
Soon after William
H. Mills offered five lots, $530, and the materials needed to build a church.
Father Machebeuf laid the cornerstone on October 13,
1841, and services were held in 1842. By Christmas of 1845, the building was complete, the steeple added,
and the bell installed.
The congregation was mostly Irish emigrants.
In 1855
as more
Germans settled nearby, they built St. Mary's Mother of Sorrows Church.
The city's expansion prompted the building of Saints Peter and Paul Church,
in 1871, Holy Angels became a mission church
of Saints Peter and Paul until 1875, when Holy Angels was assigned
its own pastor and reopened.
