Michael Krasulski is at it again, this time posting the centennial history for the mother church of West Philadelphia, St. James the Greater — now currently known as St. Agatha - St. James. Interesting to note that even back then, it was known as a "parish of institutions" — a nod to the various government, medical, and educational organizations surrounding it. Those remain a large part of its makeup and its mission.
