Last Saturday, we tagged along on the Southeast Baltimore Christmas Church Tour for a glimpse inside seven of the city’s oldest immigrant Catholic churches. Organized by the parish communities, with Christmas decorations still in full swing, we also picked up a little local history.
These photos were shot by Anthony Monczewski, 70, also along for the tour. A retired Department of Defense employee, Mr. Monczewski is the grandson of a Polish immigrant butcher and grew up in Fells Point near Holy Rosary Church in the neighborhood once known as “Little Poland.”
Open the images below to enlarge and read more about the history of these immigrant churches.
