Saint Mary Mother of God parish was founded by German immigrants in 1845. The present church was built in 1890. Its German identity began to disappear at the dawn of the 20th Century and is now a part of its history. In the 1930s, the then-pastor began a series of Monday Novenas dedicated to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. They were very successful and continued to this day.
Masses are offered in English according to the Ordinary Rite and the Chinese Pastoral Mission celebrates Mass in Chinese on Sunday and various holidays.
