St. Michael Parish was founded in 1838, but the Catholic faith in this area dates as far back as 1749 when the French explorer Pierre-Joseph Celoron and his detachment of 246 men made camp along what is now known as Loramie Creek. It was at this place that the Chaplain and geographer for the expedition, Father Joseph Peter Bonnecamps, offered the Holy Sacrifice of Mass during their encampment here, from September 13 to 21, 1749. It has been suggested that St. Michael Parish could conceivably be the scene of the first Mass said in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
