The history of Salacgriva Catholic parish is a very short one. The beginning of the parish is dated to 1975 when the priest Peteris Andzans arrived at Salacgriva to have a rest in summer. In a house, he being all alone celebrated the holy cross mesa. Then about 8 to 10 local inhabitants started to collect to the service. Everything was very quiet because it was forbidden in Soviet times to come together for the service outside the premises of a church. Then a small chapel was organized in the premises of the dwelling house. There were already 30 to 40 people. In 1987 when the Atmoda started, the Ministry of Justice allowed to register the parish.
