On the Shores of Allouez Bay


Ss. Anthony and Margaret Catholic Church claims many heritages of sorts. Some very deserving and esteemed (as they are associated with the foundation of the parish) involving the Franciscans and Belgians, others, also not without merit, that predate the existence of Allouez or Superior. These are associated with the early history of the region and also have some claim to who we are as a parish. Here we have the French explorers, the Jesuit missionaries and a group of Native Americans called the Ojibwe (Chippewa) people. In many ways, all of these heritages, as well as, the heritage left behind by the iron ore industry, present to us a framework from which to begin the history of St. Anthony Parish.
