Tybee's Roman Catholic chapel was dedicated yesterday morning (July 5, 1891) by Bishop Thomas A. Becker, assisted by Vicar General Edward D. Cafferty and Rev. W. A. McCarthy. Bishop Becker named the chapel after St. Michael the Archangel, who is known as the rule of the waves. The name is peculiarly appropriate on account of the chapel being at the seaside.
