The church was built in 1924, and became the center of religious and social life for the Polish immigrants in the city of Virginia. It was consecrated by the first Polish bishop in the United States, Paul Peter Rhode. The church was also used by nonreligious Polish organizations, including the Polish National Alliance.[2]

The building is now known as the "Holy Spirit Church", part of the Catholic Parishes of Virginia and Mt. Iron.[2][3]


The red brick structure contains Gothic elements, with 6 arched windows on each of the sides and arched windows flanking the main entrance. The steeple above the main entrance has Jacobean styling.[2]
