Saint Adalbert Parish
Kosciol Swietego Wojciecha
Just as Saint Stanislaus Kostka Parish was intended to be the magnet for Polish immigrants on Chicago's North Side, Saint Adalbert was the intended magnet on Chicago's South Side. However, the tidal wave of Polish immigrants to Chicago at the end of the 19th Century quickly led planners in the hierarchy to subsequently create dozens of additional Polish parishes in the Chicago area.
Some folks will argue that Holy Trinity on Chicago's North Side is the second oldest Polish parish in the Archdiocese of Chicago. Debate is moot. Holy Trinity is technically and officially a mission and not a parish. Further, the creation of Holy Trinity was never authorized and sanctioned by the Archdiocese of Chicago and the founding of Holy Trinity by private individuals in 1872 caused a twenty-year controversey within the Archdiocese.
Holy Masses in Polish are celebrated on Sundays at 1:15 PM and 5:00 PM.
