Annunciation Parish closed in1978. It was a West Town Irish parish in 1866.
It moved to Wabansia Ave (from Paulina Ave.) in 1868. It opened in 1866 as a
mission of St. Columbkille and became independent in 1868. Records from
1866-1871 destroyed in the Chicago Fire of 1871. All Annunciation records
are now at the Archives of the Archdiocese of Chicago according to Julie
Satzik, research archivist at the archdiocese. (St. Columbkille on Paulina
Ave. existed 1859-1975; records at Archive). Ms.Satzik has been most helpful
