History:  

Most Holy Redeemer Parish was founded in 1880. The current structure was dedicated in 1923. The dark red brick building was designed in the Romanesque style by architectural firm Donaldson and Meier. Shortly after the main church was built, remaining funds were used to construct the campanile that sits just to the north of the building. Once estimated to be the largest Roman Catholic parish in North America, today Most Holy Redeemer is still home to a healthy congregation. Mostly due to its location in Mexicantown, Most Holy Redeemer serves a predominantly Latino membership.

Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
