Description

The article examines how in 1920 the church of the Holy Ghost parish was divided to create a new parish: Our Lady of Mount Caramel. This decision was made in response to the increasing Italian American population, and to provide a new space for the peoples of Federal Hill to worship. The article also states moments of the development that followed of Our Lady of Mount Caramel, such as the purchase and demolition of surrounding properties to better utilize the space of the church and neighborhood in the 1960s onwards.
