Roseville parish celebrates 75 years

Corpus Christi in Roseville will celebrate 75 years as a parish with anniversary Masses at 5 p.m. Feb. 1 and 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Feb. 2.

The parish was established in 1939 in preparation for the National Eucharistic Congress held at the State Fairgrounds in June 1941. The first Mass was held Jan. 29 in the basement of a building close to the fairgrounds. The original church building was completed in time for the Eucharistic Congress and was located at Cleveland and Buford Avenues in St. Paul.

The current church building is located in Roseville on County Road B and Fairview Avenue. It was completed in 1992 and the original building was sold to St. Andrew Kim parish. The anniversary celebration will continue into the year with a parish mission, an anniversary dinner and dance, an event to honor former pastors and an all parish/all school reunion on the weekend of the Feast of Corpus Christi, celebrated June 19 this year.
