SLAVONIANS TO BUILD A CATHOLIC CHURCH

____________

Rev. Hinko Bontempo of Spalato Arrives and Will Be the Pastor.

The Rev. Hinko Bontempo, S.J., arrived in this city yesterday from Spalato, Dalmatia. He comes to San Francisco to institute a Slavonian Catholic church in this city.

Some weeks ago a meeting of those interested in the movement was held at Pioneer Hall and the St. Cyril Society was formed with a view toward raising funds to build a church. Antone Pilcovich was elected president and A. Scar secretary.

The first mass of this branch of the Catholic church will be celebrated by Father Bontempo in the Students’ chapel of St. Ignatius College next Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
