     The rectory was built in 1882.  Michael and Katheryn Donohue donated the house and property to the Diocese of Marysville to which the parish belonged to at the time.  Today it is part of the Diocese of Santa Rosa. The rectory was occupied by the clergy from approximately 1886 to 1950.  Prior to the construction of the Blessed Sacrament Church in Greenwood/Elk, daily masses were said in what is today the sacristy - the room to the right of the front entrance.
     Today the rectory is not occupied, but is made available as a retreat location for clergy and religious.  It is maintained by the Elk Altar Society.  For more information about the rectory see "Church History."
