Tucker Community

Bloomo SchoolHoly Rosary Catholic Church

Located 7 miles south of Philadelphia on Highway 19 South, the community was an Indian Mission founded by a Missionary Priest from Holland. Friends of Father B. J. Bekkar in Holland provided funds to build the first church, a small log structure in 1884. From humble beginning, in spite of fires and other adversities, Holy Rosary has grown and its missionaries also serve two missions--St. Catherine's in Conehatta, built in l938 and St. Theresa near Pearl River Reservation, built in 1948.
