• Father Anthony Recker, pastor of All Saints, displays the May 4, 1972, issue of the Rossford Record that was among the historic items in the cornerstone, which is shown below.

St. Mary Magdalene parish time capsule from 1972 opened

When demolition on the downtown Rossford Schools property finished last summer and the dust settled, a small box of history remained.

That box–a cornerstone from St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church–was opened recently by the seniors group at All Saints Catholic Church.

On May 7, 1972, the cornerstone was blessed and laid at the church on Dixie Highway.

The former church had been part of the Rossford Schools campus since 1998, and it was among the buildings razed in June 2018 to make way for the new facilities now under construction.
