Marker Text Founded 1876 to serve Poles settling in Bremond that decade. First church, built 1879, since 1908 (date of this edifice) has been parish school. Fathers A. Krypajtis (died 1907) and I. J. Szymanski (died 1941) led building of this Gothic structure. Parish made sacrifices, gave much labor to create edifice of old-world charm. Font and sacred art came from the 1879 structure. Settlers' heirs come yearly from far away to worship here. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1969
