Welcome to Saint Wenceslaus Catholic Church

Welcome to the web site of St. Wenceslaus Church in Baltimore. We are a church with a long history, a rich tradition and a diverse congregation. Our beautiful church was built in 1914 by Bohemian Catholic immigrants to Baltimore who first established the parish in 1872. While most of the Bohemian-Americans have moved to the suburbs and beyond, many still return to worship with us. Meanwhile the majority of our members today come from the African-American population of our neighborhood, as well as the former parishes of St. Katharine, St. James and John and St. Bernard. 

St. Wenceslaus School has been closed since 1986, but two other neighborhood Catholic schools, St. Katharine and St. James and John, continue to provide quality education to our children. Our convent now serves as a hospice for men with chronic illnesses, under the care of the Missionary Sisters of Charity. St. Wenceslaus has had a "twin sister" since 1995, sharing a pastor with St. Ann's Church on Greenmount Avenue. In 1999 the Franciscan Friars of the Third Order Regular replaced the Redemptorists who had to withdraw due to lack of personnel.

Father Peter

Through all the changes that our church has witnessed, we continue to be a community rooted in the Catholic tradition and moved by the Spirit to proclaim good news in a troubled neighborhood Our volunteers are the best; our youth are the most dedicated; our elders are the most faithful; our liturgy is the most Spirit-filled. And, of course, I'm completely objective!
