Charenton history:

Father Stephen Theodore Badin, the first Catholic priest ever ordained in the USA did the first baptisms in Immaculate Conception Church in Charenton in 1844. Father Badin was a missionary who evangelized an area from New York state to Louisiana. His primary focus was in the area around southern Indiana and Kentucky.

Father Badin was especially interested in the evangelization of Native Americans which is what brought him to Charenton. Badin sold the land that became the University of Notre Dame. He sold it to Father Edward Sorin and the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1842. For more information on the early religious religious history of Charenton contact
