During 2015 Corpus Christi Catholic Church is celebrating the 135th anniversary of the founding of its parish in Bolton Hill. To celebrate we are organizing a number of free events for all ages which will take place in our beautiful, historic church building and grounds.

Enjoy the free music, art, historic tours, refreshments & children's activities. Experience the hospitality of the Corpus Christi community & the beauty of this historic church.

 

5.30.2015. Lecture: Patrick Keely's Hidden Treasure on Bolton Hill Discover! On Saturday May 30, at 2 PM, Ted Furey, President of the Patrick Keely Society, will talk to us about the man who designed our church, the celebrated Irish Architect, Patrick Charles Keely. Discover the origin of the beautiful stained-glass windows, the Venetian glass mosaics, the gothic arches and spire, the Odell Tracker organ and more. By the early 1880s, Keely had designed numerous churches, and cathedrals in the United States. It was not unusual then, that the Jenkins children, following the request of their dear mother, Louisa Carrell Jenkins, would call upon Keely to design this splendid edifice whose spire soars prominently today. Patrick Keely had already completed two ecclesiastical structures in Baltimore, St. Mary, Star of the Sea, in the 1860's, and the Romanesque Chapel for St. Joseph's Passionist Monastery by 1880. Patrick Keely's design and the incorporation of the finest ecclesiastical treasures from the John Hardman Studios of England was to raise the status of Corpus Christi-Jenkins Memorial Church to one of the finest Catholic churches to be found along the East Coast.
