On June 6, 1866 ground was broken for the first Catholic Church in Wilmington. Completion of the first church building was delayed when a tornado destroyed the roof on March 16, 1868. Rev. Michael O'Donoghue was the first pastor. Parishioners were more shaken in 1882 when Fr. John O’Donoghue was murdered.
Is the celebration and reception of the Eucharist the center of my spiritual life?
