How the Name Came About

Dresden castle is named for the City of Dresden as the capital city in the German state of Saxony, and well as its regal, commanding and almost “Castle like” neo-gothic architecture.


​In fact, the City has lots of Polish, German, and Slavic influences that has shape its unique history. 

 

Architectural History

Rising from a cut stone foundation and constructed of hollow tile and faced with orange-tone brick, this Neo-Gothic Revival-style, cruciform plan church is oriented on a north/south axis and is anchored at its northeast corner by a three(+)story belltower trimmed with stone-capped, brick pilasters. Regarding the belltower, a single sash window occupies the first floor to both the north (primary elevation) and east, while a tall-and-narrow lancet window is situated along the second level (again on both the north and east elevations). The third story contains Gothic-arched openings with wooden louvers on all four sides. Beneath the louvered openings is stone trim featuring a trefoil ornament, while the stone trim at the above consists of blind Gothic arches alternating with a foliated design. The tower’s pyramidal roof is covered with copper and surmounted by a cross.

 

Holy Family Roman Catholic Church

All over the nation this year Americans are preparing to celebrate the bicentennial of the founding of this country - and the nine hundred and fifteen families in Holy Family Congregation of Cudahy have a double reason to celebrate as it is also the year that their parish observes its 75th Anniversary.
The early Americans who captured the spotlight of history were ordinary people united in a common cause, and here there is a parallel between those fiery patriots and the turn-of-the-century founders of Holy Family; each began with a dream and persevered through hope, prayer, and faith.
The American founders left us all a rich heritage. The founders of Holy Family Congregation created a legacy that has endured through three generations. They laid down the foundations for their future in this section of Cudahy - and for their children and grandchildren for generations to come.
The history of this parish is a remarkable story of perseverance that has survived two world wars and the Great Depression, yet grows stronger in spirit as the years go on.
