Our Lady of Hungary begins 100th anniversary celebration

Our Lady of Hungary in South Bend began its 100th anniversary celebration on Jan. 10. The parish began as a mission church of St. Stephen’s Parish in 1916 when St. Stephen’s pastor, Father Lawrence Horvath, built a church for Our Lady on Catalpa Street near Prairie Avenue. It became an independent parish years later when the present church was built on Calvert Street. Bottom center is the banner for the centennial celebration.
