History of St. Alphonsus Church Maple Glen

St. Alphonsus Parish, Maple Glen, Pennsylvania was founded on June 4, 1963 by Reverend Archbishop of Philadelphia John J. Krol. The founding pastor was Father Daniel Lenahan, who idolized St. Alphonsus and was assigned the task of building a new parish. Father Lenahan stressed the importance of family unity and dedicated his new parish to the Holy Family. The Holy Family Grotto and its position at the center of the property facing the church, was to reflect the guardianship of the Holy Family over our Church.

Temporary quarters for Mass and meetings were established in the Knights of Columbus Hall, Norristown Road and Limekiln Pike, which serviced the 350 parishioners. The first Mass was said on July 7, 1963, when the Knights of Columbus was not a completed building. For 23 months, four Sunday Masses were said at the Knights of Columbus and daily Mass was said in the den of the rectory.

On October 31, 1965, the Feast of Christ the King, the first Mass was celebrated in the church proper. On August 10, 1964, the Mercy Sisters came to our parish and moved into a house next to the property until the following May when they were able to move into the convent which is the present day rectory. St. Alphonsus school opened its doors on September 8, 1964 with four Sisters of Mercy and four lay teachers. The original student body consisted of 221 children.

Some of the original Parish Organizations are still active today, St. John Hospice, Aids for Friends,Share the Word, Bible Study, Choir and CYO. Most of the organizations were developed from interested parishioners and today our parish offers a diverse selection of church organizations for all parishioners.

St. Alphonsus Parish is grateful for the dedicated parishioners of the past and look forward to the continued growth spiritually, academically and socially with the 1,800 current parish families.   Edit
