About Annunciation Catholic Church
Annunciation Parish traces its origins to the missionary efforts of Fr. Ferdinand Helias, SJ. In 1857, with the building of the Missouri Pacific Railroad, many Irish families settled near California, and together with a few German families, a congregation was formed.
A parish school was established in 1889. This building, along with the church, was destroyed by fire in 1900. Both were rebuilt, but the school burned again in 1982 and was not rebuilt. A new church was dedicated on June 23, 1985.
Assumption Church in Cedron, built in 1838 and closed in 1993, has also been part of the Annunciation Parish in California, Missouri.
Parish History was taken from Proclaiming the Good News in the Heart of Missouri written by Loretta Pastva, SND.
