Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church History

Some history about our Church…

1891

The formal opening of the first Catholic Church in Krugersdorp took place on 9 June 1891. It was dedicated to Saints Peter and Paul.

For the first few years after the church was dedicated, there was no resident Parish Priest and it is known that priests visited Krugersdorp from Johannesburg during this time.

From a study of the church records, it was concluded that Fr Isidore Tresch was the first Parish Priest (in 1898).
