Description:

Photos show views of the Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church at 1155 Main Street on the west side of the street opposite Coolidge Park in the Greenwood section of Wakefield. After holding Masses for years at the local fire station, Catholics in the Greenwood section of Wakefield succeeded in raising enough money to build a proper chapel, where the first Mass was celebrated in the Shingle Style church in 1927. It remained a "mission" church of St. Joseph's until 1931, when a new parish was announced including Greenwood and parts of Melrose and Saugus. The wings were added in the 1940s and the building was expanded further in the late 20th century. Photos taken July 26, 2008, at 12:30 p.m.
