St. Hedwig Parish Trivia
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of our parish, we are printing short "did-you-knows" in our bulletin. Here's the archive:
- February 16 - The Roman Catholic Parish in Los Alamitos was founded in 1922 under the patronage of St. Isidore, the patron saint of farmers.
- February 23 - The site of the original parish church (then St. Isidore) was donated by Bixby, a big land owner at the time. Mike Reagan organized the building project, and the church was constructed by the parishioners themselves.
- March 1 - St. Isidore was (and still is!) situated at the corner of Katella Ave and Reagan St in Los Alamitos. Reagan St was named in honor of Mike Reagan, who organized the building project of the original church.
