Our Lady of Good Counsel: In the late 1800s, the village of Brooklyn OH was mission territory for the Diocese of Cleveland. In July 1873, twenty area Catholics gathered together in a nearby public school for Mass. The mission was called Sacred Heart of Mary Mission and Mass was then celebrated in a copper shop. One year later, the cornerstone was laid for the first church on Broadview Road. Finally in 1894, the mission was made a parish and a school was opened. The parish was given to the priests of Society of the Most Precious Blood. In May of 1907, a fire destroyed the church and the school. The church was built at a new site on Pearl Road and was dedicated on the Feast of the Assumption in 1909. In 1917, because of the large number of Catholics moving to the area, ground was broken for a new church. At that time, the parish changed their name to Our Lady of Good Counsel. The church was dedicated on May 30, 1930. Our Lady of Good Counsel School opened in 1918 and would grow to over 1000 students. The school was staffed for many years by the Sisters of the Precious Blood. Several parishes can claim Our Lady of Good Counsel as their mother parish such as St. Charles Borromeo, St. Thomas More and St. Leo the Great. After serving the parish for more than 100 years, the Missionaries of the Precious Blood ended their affiliation with Our Lady of Good Counsel in April 2010.
In 1934, Bishop Shrembs received a petition for a new parish composed of South Brooklyn’s Polish Catholics. In 1935, Corpus Christi parish was established, so named because of the National Eucharistic Congress held in Cleveland that year. The first Mass was celebrated in the Pearl Road Recreation Center. The church was dedicated in November 1937. A new church and school were dedicated in November of 1954. The school closed in June 2005. The last Mass celebrated in the church at 4850 Pearl Road was on April 17, 2010, the Vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday.
The parish of Mary Queen of Peace opened on April 25, 2010 with a Mass celebrated Bishop Richard Lennon of the Diocese of Cleveland. The merged parish is located on the site of Our Lady of Good Counsel church. Father Doug Brown serves as the first pastor. Mary Queen of Peace is a vibrant parish community with opportunities for many spiritual, social and community outreach activities. The school continues to serve children in Old Brooklyn and throughout greater Cleveland.
