Bridesburg, the northernmost of Philadelphia's River Wards, is a river-front neighborhood just south and east the Northeast section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. Bridesburg is an historically German and Irish community, with a significant community of Polish immigrants who arrived mostly in the early- to mid-twentieth century. The community is home to two Catholic churches: All Saints Church, designed by Edwin Forrest Durang and built in 1889; and Saint John Cantius Church, built some time after 1892 in Polish Cathedral style.
