St. Patrick Catholic Church
Over the year, people of German heritage settled in this area. The parish community grew to over 100 families. St Patrick Church operated a school until 1954. The church closed in 1994, and the building was razed in 2001.
The St. Patrick parishioners contributed their spiritual, physical, and material resources to make the parish community successful. The parish thrived due to the religious zeal of its members. At least 24 parishioners entered religious vocations.
In the spirit of the St. Patrick Community, welcome to all who visit here! May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warmly upon your face, and may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
