Saint Ferdinand Catholic Church is a large, vibrant parish that has a tradition of serving Godís people with the warmth of a small parish.
It is named in honor of King Ferdinand III (1199-1252) who ruled Castile (now part of Spain) in the 13th Century. He was recognized by the Roman Catholic Church as a saint in 1671.
The church dates back to 1961 when Bishop John J. Wright raised St. Ferdinand Mission to the status of parish.
St. Ferdinand's current facility was begun in 1989 and includes rooms for various outreach and educational purposes as well as a banquet hall that can seat 280 people.
The rectory is open Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
On-site parking is available.
