The early 's brought groups of Polish immigrants to Baltimore. They arrived at the Broadway pier in Fells Point. By , a large community of Poles had formed in the Fells Points section of the city. In that year they organized the St. Stanislaus Kostka Society, whose goal was to secure funds in order to build a church. By , the first Polish parish in Baltimore city was organized and the first Polish church was built under the patronage of St.

Stanislaus Kostka. By the late 's the population of Polish immigrants was growing rapidly and conflict arose between the St. Stanislaus Society and the pastor of St. Stanislaus Church. A protestant church building located on Bethel St. Father Piotr Peter Chowaniec, a priest from Poland, became the first pastor. On December 8, , Father Peter celebrated the parish's first Mass. In , acreage was purchased outside the city in Dundalk for a parish cemetery.

Not long after that, a parish elementary school was opened and the Felician Sisters were invited to staff the school.

Eventually, a four storey school was built across from the church on Eastern Avenue as well as a three storey convent. In Father Peter died under suspicious causes while still young in years. Father Mieczyslaw Barabasz was assigned as the second pastor. He was a highly educated man and was editor of the clerical newspaper "Przyjaciel Domu " Friend of the Home. He expanded the church in order to accommodate its rapidly growing congregation. Unfortunately, he had many problems with factions in the parish and with the St.

Stanislaus Kostka Society. The Society, which had been instrumental in founding the two Polish parishes, also led a revolt leading several hundred families into schism. Subsequently, they established the independent parish of Our Lady of Unceasing Help which is located on Broadway. This church would later join the Polish National Catholic Church movement. Barabasz passed away before his time in The third pastor was Father Stanislaus Wachowiak.

A native from the parish, and the first American born pastor, he was appointed just one year after his ordination. Father Wachowiak, later Monsignor, spent the rest of his priest life as pastor until his retirement in Father Wachowiak had the vision needed to recognize the need to relocate the parish site several blocks east in order to accommodate its continuing growth.

For a time, Holy Rosary was not only the largest Polish parish among six in Baltimore, but also the largest parish in the Archdiocese. After Monsignor Wachowiak's well-deserved retirement in , Father Chester Mieczkowski was appointed the fourth pastor. Father Mieczkowski had been an assistant to Monsignor Wachowiak for many years. Later on, Father Mieczkowski was also designated a domestic prelate, or Monsignor.

After World War II, a gradual decline became evident in the parish. In the s and s, the older generation began to pass on and many younger families sought homes in newer sections of the city and in the suburbs. The school began to decline in enrollment, as there were fewer families with children living in the neighborhood.

The school finally closed its doors in In , Monsignor Mieczkowski retired and Father Ronald Pytel, a native son of the parish was appointed the fifth pastor. Currently much of the Fells Point, Upper Fells Point and adjacent Canton neighborhoods are undergoing what is called gentrification.

There is also a boom of new apartment and condominium housing, which is changing the face of the area. There is a challenge of re-evangelization of young adult baptized Catholics that are not practicing their faith.

After World War 11 and early in the s, there were an influx of Polish immigrants displaced persons which helped to stabilize the need for services in the Polish language.

Holy Rosary Church is a magnet for Polish-speaking people, as the parish continues to promote itself as the spiritual and cultural center of Baltimore's Polonia.

At present, Holy Rosary is the only parish to continue using the Polish language at Sunday Mass, and on weekdays as well. The Cardinal Hlond Polish School has both religion and Polish language classes for the parish children.

In , the parish was blessed when the Sisters of Merciful Jesus arrived from Poland to open their first house on American soil. Holy Rosary Parish, which has one of the most beautiful churches if not the most beautiful in the Archdiocese, is looking eagerly to meet its future challenges.
