Consecration of First Catholic Church '      in Old Naumkeag. After years of earncat n-ork, the members of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Parish of Salem have Bucceediiii? in liquidating the entire indobteducss on their cluu-oh, and today the beautiful edifice -will be consecrated by the Most Kev. John J. AVilliamR. D. D.. of Bo.sto)i, -n'ith all the jiomp and Boleninity Incident to such a ceremony. AS the present-year iG Hie centennial anni-vo^sary of the so-wing- of t)io first seeds of Catholic faith in .Salem, it is i>ertinent nt this time to pivo a brii^f sketch of the gro-�'tl) and prosperity of tlie cliurch. From the Ino.st authentic records it is learned that the first mass in Salem -Wiis celebrated on Thursday, May C, 1700, hy Hot. ilohn Tliayer, the first k^gitimately appointed pastor of the Catholic church of Boston, and -whose ari-iva! in tliat town only three, months previous created no little Btir amouB Protestants tln-oub'liout New Kncland. ifatlier Thayer -svas then a conrert. Ho had been widely Icnowu around Boston as ii, Puritan minister, and in ]7S1 vi.sitcdFranco for the purpose of travel and study. "Wiiilo on the continent lie jiiailc a special study of Catholic doctrines, and on May tin, 3 7S:i, he publicly abjureiJ Protestantism in the presence of jnany of his old friends. Bev. William Buckley, iiroinijient amnner tlic leaders, and tit the head of tlie liberal or Unitarian brancli of the old orthodox ohtirch of Salem, pave Father Tliayer a cordial welcome, and entertained him at his (Bentley's) house. IJr. Beniloy ever Iiroved a devoted friend to Father Thayer, -\vhich WHJiiustrikinK- contrast with public Bentimentat tliattime. Just where the first mass was celebrated is not known, iillhoug-h tradition Rives tlie honor to the coiu-t liouse tlicii fitandinjfon (.Washing-ton St.. at the present intersection of Federal St. It is also stated tliattlioold brick buildinp on Union st. was the place. The privileg-ed spot remains in doubt, .simply because the only newsjir.per in the town Jailed to make any mention of tlio event, and the records are sileat on this point. Tiia last recorded visit of Father Thayer to Halem wan cm .Saturday, Oct. J C, 3 7111, Tlie -n-ork so successfully inaugurated liy Father Thayer was taken up by two learned, piou.i and noble-mimJeil anostlas, Itev.Francis Matisnon and Kev. .loliii do (.heveruB. The Catholics of 8aleni previous to 1800 did not mimber over i;n iiersons, and some-tiraes even Joss, 't-r tlicy -ivc-re s.iilors and mostly mimarried, hence not fixed residents of the place. Father Slatiinion, in his report to Bishop Cai-roU in 178$. (pves the Tremont and Beacon Sts. number of persons who received holy communion at Easter, and only three are recorded. From 1701 to 1707 there is not a Binglo baptism recorded, tliouph some ohildroa may have been biiptizod in Boston. Father Matignon or Father Choverua came to Salem two or three timefi in each year previous 1� 1810, and heard confessions and celebi-atod mass and preached, but of the place where Catholics were wont to a.s-seinble diu-ing this period there is no direct evidence. It, is probable, however, that the brick huildins on the corner of Essex and Union st.s. was often used for tliese "sacred rites" and "Christian instruction." In 1810 Fattier Ciioveru.s was consecrntod the first bishop of Boston, and all New England was formed into one diocese. Previous to tliis time from 1,780 Bishop Cai-rcill or Baltimore was tlio only Viishop in the United Statiis. Ho liad visited Boston in 17{ll and again in 1803, when hododi-cnted the first Catholic church of Bo.ston. It is alino.st imiiossible, says Rev. I/ads S. AValsh, to aseortam with certainty where the Catholics assoinblod between 1812 and 1821. Tradition says the place of worship was a house on Herbert St., owned by a man named Connolly. A second place is an old sehoolhouse on Hardy st. Pr. Bentley, who wa.s present at botli visits of Bisliop Chevorus in 1811, says tlio siM'vices were held in a house owned by a in.aii named Campbell on Daniels st. In 1812 there were upward of 100 Catholics in Salem and vicinity. In 181.'! Bi.shop Clieverus tbougrht that the Catholics ought to secure land for a church .and (-.n April'Jti, 1813, tliodeed of the first Catholic property was Biven to the bishop. It uiis a lot on wliat is now the western corner of Federal st, and Federal ct., and was boiiKlit from Hugh Irwin for 871^. The jiarish failed to erect the church, owing, doubtless, to lack of funds. Bisliop Clieverus kept the property in liis iiossession ruitil April li, 1K17, wlion he sold it for Sfioo. Ill 1818, Kev. Paul JIcQuado of Boston made his first visit to .Salem, and continued his visits every month until 1823, when he relni-iied to Eni-ope. There is one person still livinp: in Salem who was baptized April ,-iU, 1820. by Father WcQuade. Her numo is Mrs. Eliza Barry, her lionio lioiiiK at 20 Myrtle st. In 1820, the Catholics n-(imherod about 12ri souls, and Bishop Clieverus deemed it proper to hesin the work of buildiiiK a chni-cli. Tlie .site selected was on the corner of Bridge and Mall sts., and cost .�200. Mutliew Kawport, a zealous Catholic, commenced to ciTllect money for tho church in 1810, imd with him was iussociateri Josenli Giluiai), -n-ell remembered liy tho older members of the Immaculate Conception tiurisli us the sexton of tho ori(rinal or St. Miii-y's church.
