St. Elizabeth’s Parish Forged in the Fires of the Great Migration

St. Elizabeth's, founded in North Philadelphia in 1872 to serve a German immigrant population, would later be transformed as African Americans fled the harsh realities of segregation in the South. By the 1950s, with the support of dynamic and innovative pastoral leadership, St. Elizabeth was home to 3,000 Black Catholics and about 1,000 students.
