The Reverend Joseph V. Mulligan currently serves in the capacity of pastor. The parish had its beginnings in the 1940s for the few Catholic families and students at Appalachian State University.[2] Early celebrations of Mass took place in the homes of residents before a new church was built in 1958. Priests from St. John Baptiste deLasalle in North Wilkesboro served the people in this new parish. In 1964 Glenmary Home Missioners served the parish until it was returned to the Diocese of Charlotte in 1973. The first Glenmary pastor was Fr. Ed Smith. The first diocesan pastor was Fr. George Kloster. The first church structure was gutted by a fire in 1984. New property was found and a second structure was built in 1988. Fr. Frank Connolly was the pastor during the building of this church. Additional space for education was built in 1993 under pastor Fr. H. Cornell Bradley, S.J. Worship services, the celebration of the Mass, are at 12:15 p.m. on weekdays, 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays, and 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. on Sundays. A Mass in Spanish is also celebrated at 5:00 p.m. on Sundays. In addition to the parish church, a mission church, Church of the Epiphany, is located in nearby Blowing Rock. The church does not have its own priest and operates seasonally, with Sunday liturgies offered during the summer months. The parish clergy also serve the sacramental needs of the Appalachian State Catholic Campus Ministry, a vicarial organization for college students within the parish. The CCM is financially divorced from the parish, however, it is funded by the Diocese of Charlotte. The parish is noted for its well-developed catechetical programs and, in 1993, received the Mustard Seed Award from the National Catholic Education Association in recognition of their high level of involvement and participation.[2] References ^ Roman Catholic Diocese of Charlotte.
